This cuvée from Terre de L'Elu has an initial minty nose, followed by red fruit aromas along with fresh herbs and scents of camphor. The smooth, velvety texture softens the fine tannins. A long finish.
Serve at 16°C, don't hesitate to open this wine one hour in advance. The best match is with red meat with herbs and vegetables. Likely to be too powerful for white meats.
This wine can be enjoyed now but will age for 10 years.
