Tasting notes
Lovely pink colour with brilliant highlights. Fine, persistent bead. Freshness and finesse: fine, lively bouquet with fresh, red-berry fruit aromas (wild strawberries and cherries). Lively initial impression on the palate and good aromatic intensity. Well-balanced on the palate, following through with a fresh, wonderfully subtle aftertaste.
Food pairing
as an aperitif (quiches & savoury cakes), with desserts (red-berry fruit sorbet, chocolate tart, dried-fruit desserts, with honey or red-berry fruit), or simply for pleasure.
