Vin de France
Cabernet Franc (60 %) Syrah (30 %) Merlot-Grenache (10%)
The colour is a deep red with ruby highlights. The wine is clean and shiny.
The nose is very complex, with aromas of red currant and stewed black fruit. Lovely notes of cocoa and tonka bean.
Up to 5 years
Traditional fermentation in open vats, with short, silky pump-overs to extract the best tannins. Some of the Cabernet Franc and Syrah grapes are aged in one-wine barrels, to give a light oaked wine.
The mouth is powerful but silky, with a freshness typical of the high-altitude wines of the Cabardès area. Beautiful balance.
This wine goes perfectly with Anna HAUGH recipe, such as “Red wine braised beef with peas and girolles mushrooms”. It pairs very well with red meat, grilled or in sauce, a beef tartar or a cheese platter.
