  • Tasting notes

    Deep red coat with violet glints.

    The first nose develops ripe red berries aromas such as blackcurrant and blackberry as well as balsamic aromas (camphor, eucalyptus).

    The agitation reveals licorice, spices (pepper and cinnamon) and violet aromas.

    The attack is round and fat, followed by a surprisingly fresh and deep mid-palate with chocolate and liquorice aromas on velvety tannins.

    The finish offers a long-lasting grilled mocha taste.

  • Food Pairing

    This Syrah is a perfect companion for a red roasted meat: prime rib or grilled breast of duck
