Powerful and velvety are the keynotes of this new claret., in which Merlot (85%) dominates the blend.
Aged in newish oak for 12 months, this is a elegant and spicy wine, with its generous fruit flavours (raspberry, blackberry and black cherry) wrapped in mild but savoury tannins. The producer suggests pairing with a variety of roast meats, but, if you prefer, a good mushroom risotto, roasted vegetables or ratatouille work very well too.
