Crunchy, green blend of Gamay, Duras and Iron Servadou from a forgotten part of South West France. Sour red cherry fruit with a savoury quality and plenty of cracked pepper spice from the Gamay. A great example of what quality can be found at this level in the lesser-known regions. Perfect served lightly chilled with a coarse terrine, fresh bread and butter.

What red wine should be like... Heady mixture of savoury earthiness and fruity ripeness. Can't say we drank it as accompaniment to a terrine... nor do I have a trained palate, but we did have it slightly cooler than usual and thought it had a more complex taste like that. Splendidly flowery description on the label too :-). Thanks also for speedy delivery as always.
Really enjoyed this. Rich without being heavy.
