Ruby red colour. The nose, at first, is discrete because of its young age, red fruit aromas prevail, black current, cherry, elderberry followed by mixed notes of rosemary and thyme. In the mouth the first taste is surprising light due to its freshness and light menthol liveliness followed by red fruit, and the subtle tastes of chocolate and cinnamon. The final taste gives an impression of energy and length
Ideal served at 15°C. Good with roast leg of lamb, veal, mushroom omelette, goats cheese or comte, rich chocolate desserts.
