Red wine Cuvée Léa

€10.40
VAT included

A garnet-red colour with violet reflections, an intense and complex nose marked by fruity notes, more particularly morello cherry. A frank attack with powerful and silky tannins. A beautiful complexity, we find the aromas of morello cherry and a vanilla side in mouth. Good length.

Keeping potential of 7 to 10 years.

Serve at 16-18°c with meat such as beef, lamb and duck as well as game in sauce and cheese. Try with chocolate.

Tasting

Olfactory
Complex nose, pleasant and a little closed on the youth. Notes of roasted hazelnuts, wood and a little vanilla are found on the first nose. The red fruits express themselves after aeration, especially the blackcurrant.
Taste
a frank opening. Lots of tannins in the mouth, very powerful but with great finesse.
A rich, very complex, thick wine for thrill seekers.

Try it with chocolate!
