This Bordeaux Superieur is mainly made with Merlot (80%) and Cabernet-Franc (20%) giving it nice depth and structure and fruitiness at the same time.
What does it taste like:
Deep colour with crimson tints. Brimming with black fruits flavours (black berry, black cherry), red fruits (cassis, crushed strawberry) and liquorice. Mineral, spicy and toasty. Medium-bodied, mouth-filling texture and balance, with ripe and fine tannins. Long on the finish.
Enjoy this wine with red meat, grilled meat and game. Also well suited for pasta, red sauces and cheese.
