This is one of the top wines from Gerard Bertrand, and he is keeping the blend of grapes a secret. However, it doesn’t matter because it's a delish drink that would be awesome with rich meat dishes. Aromas of ripe plums, dark cherries and licorice adorn the nose, and then flood the palate, which is fuller-bodied, succulent and sultry with fine sandy tannins, bright acidity, and a long, licoricy finish. This has a few years left in it!
Deep ruby-purple, highly concentrated. On the nose, aromas are complex and multidimensional, evoking very ripe black fruit through an empyreumatical web of toasty oak and minerals (flint). On the mouth, the texture is rich with layers of concentrated fruit and soft, fine tannins. The long, balanced finish allows the taste of the terroir of Boutenac to linger on...
To be opened one or two hours before serving at 60,8°F with game or red meat, grilled or on sauce.
