Item No. 95193

Winemaker's Notes

Color: Crimson ruby red

Bouquet: To the nose this wine offers at first a basket of small red and black fruits (strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant, bilberry) later evolving into cooked prune, peppery notes, and notes of animal, underbrush, moss and mushroom.

Taste: Maximum is lively and structured in the mouth with a well-rounded and supple backbone. Tannins and fruit go hand in hand and the chewiness matches the power of the secondary aromas. This wine has volume and flesh.

Serving suggestions: Red wines from Burgundy have an elegant and refined character as well as a light and fluid structure in the mouth. Serve this Maximum with rather delicate dishes that are to some degree aromatic - vegetable salads, meat or poultry tarts, or simmered beef and vegetables (pot-au-feu). Moreover, its delicacy makes a perfect choice for those who like red wine with fish. Its natural elegance also predisposes this wine towards veal or hard cheeses like Gouda.
