Alcohol content : 12,5 % ABV. The opinion of our sommelier at the Domaine de Bonarieux :
Colour : Deep red, clear and gleaming, glints of purple, very dense.
Nose : Complex and powerful, combining aromas of leather, violets, and liquorice.
Palate : The full-bodied tannins are accompanied by woodiness, the chocolaty flavours are long and persistent. Plenty of body and vigour in this wine with very good keeping potential.
To be enjoyed at near room-temperature (14° et 16°C) with sauced meat dishes and small game.
