Les Ruchets displays a superb deep black cherry color with complex and elegant with notes of spices, violets and black fruit with a hint of vanilla. Powerful, structured notes of black fruit, herbs, white pepper and blueberry.
Delicious with game such as duck, hare or pigeon but also perfect with a roasted entrecote steak.
"Solidly built, with charcoal and ganache notes up front, revealing dark plum, currant paste and fig flavors at the core for balance. The long, olive-tinged finish has ample grip for the cellar."
"Inky purple. Intense, smoke-tinged blackberry and cassis on the nose, with deeper notes of licorice and espresso adding complexity. Sweet, broad and densely packed, with velvety flavors of blackcurrant and blackberry and peppery spices in the background. Closes with excellent clarity, smooth tannins and a suave, very persistent floral pastille quality."
