"Shimmering ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of fresh dark berries and pungent flowers pick up a hint of minerality with air. Smooth and spicy in the mouth, offering lively bitter cherry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors that show very good clarity and building sweetness. Sneaky tannins frame the finish, which echoes the mineral note and lingers with strong, blue-fruit-driven persistence."
In the Rhone Valley, or through the most beautiful regions of France and the world, the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER lets the terroir express itself.
It mingles floral aromas of peony and violet with berries, like strawberry and red currant, notes of undergrowth and a slightly smoky touch
On the mouth, it is lace-like, with a very pleasant fruity finish.
Sommelier's advice: Serve at 14° to 16°C as a reward after a long day of work or pair it with comfort food like fondue bourguignonne or viande de Grisons (dried meat). Try it on a cheese raclette for an unusual pairing. Drink within 3 to 5 years.
