Sensory profile The wine’s lovely purple colour conjures up cyclamen, Burgundy rose, and the dense hue of certain orchids. The eye seems to positively impact the nose as well, as it releases an immediate impression of spice and blossoms, then ceding space to elegant notes of pungent forest floor, violets, incense, and sandalwood. This refined, silk-smooth bouquet accompanies the palate along its development, which shows magisterially well-proportioned and crisply thirst-quenching. The wine’s harmonious melding of aromas and flavours continues into the finish, and only there one enjoys the pleasant burr of supple tannins that give the impression of roasted nuts and dried fruit, felicitously lengthening the finale.


Pairings This is a classic Cabernet Franc of exceptional elegance, the perfect accompaniment to fresh and medium-aged cows-milk cheeses, leaner sausages and cold cuts, well-seasoned tartare and carpaccio, and in general grilled meats that are not too thick. In the winter, it partners beautifully with pasta and beans, or with lentils, and with legumes in general.
