The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again at the in the last days of August. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under a bright sunshine to harvest grapes fully ripe.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Delicate floral fragrances and aromas of raspberries mixed with spicy nuances. Well-balanced, with a beautiful fruit combination. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "charcuterie", barbecue and all sorts of mild cheeses.
