TASTING NOTE
"This 2010 red Graves has a deep ruby color with purple reflections. With a mature nose built with finesse, combining notes of red fruits and spices backed by a wooded-grilled smoked. On the palate the wine is generous and velvety. We find notes of stewed red fruits. A touch-grilled toasted completed the aromatic range. The tannins are present and silky. In the final notes of black pepper and menthol provide a feeling of freshness.
This rich wine, soft on the finesse and freshness will accommodate perfectly with foie gras or a lamb shoulder."
