Tasting Notes:
From vines situated in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, this wine is structured and firmly tannic. The tannins just avoid bitterness through the potential of the ripe black-currant fruits and acidity. It's a wine to age; drink from 2020.

Aging: Stainless Steel tank for 6-8 months then brief passage in oak (3-4 months).

Food Pairing: Brisket - Teriyaki beef – Hamburgers - Roast Lamb with Garlic & Rosemary - Rosemary Lamb Chops
