Yellow mature colour. Spicy and some fruit left. Medium body. Elegant and easy to drink.
Store and Serve Advices:
Serve at cellar temperature (15/17°). Decantation is recommended to separate the sediment. This cellar wine will mature over the years and develop a complex variety of aromas. You can also enjoy it when young to taste the intensity of its fruit. It is best drunk 4 to 40 years after bottling. Drink within 48 hours after openning.
Particularly enjoyable with a dessert, with dark chocolate or cheese. Also on its own at the end of a meal.
