Intense garnet color with purple tints precedes a nose of great complexity. Floral aromas of peony, ripe black fruits, and truffle on a discreet earthy note. A rich palate with round tannins, great length, and meaty fullness. Mouth-filling, this wine demands food equally rich, smooth, and complex. Musky and marbled meats, not too firm, allowing the tannins to envelop it without over-powering.
Pairs with Forerib of beef; braised lamb; roast veal with mushrooms; game-bird in sauce
