This "gibeceux" wine, spiced, peppered and with powerful tannins with pair well with game, grilled duck breast in a slightly spiced sauce with green pepper.
"Vivid red. Fresh red and dark berry aromas are complicated by graphite, fresh flowers and baking spices. Lithe and precise, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors, silky texture and fully integrated tannins. There's an appealing pinot-like delicacy to this wine.

"Light-bodied for the vintage, with perfumy sandalwood, red cherry, plum and black tea notes that glide along through the silky finish. Not big, but with solid length and balance. This also puts on weight nicely as it airs. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases imported."
