Very dark crimson in color with purple reflections. The nose is filled with concentrated black fruit. Enticing on the palate with suppleness, freshness and persistence. Long finish. An ample and generous wine recommended on grilled meats.

About Domaine de Poulvalrel:

It is impossible to separate Domaine Poulvalrel from Elizabeth and Pascal Glas. And for good reason. In 2004, after Pascal had worked in various wineries for 25 years, they decided to create their own on family land.

What might have seemed like a crazy idea at the time, it has now turned out to be a well taken gamble. The various wines of the domaine are amongst the "winner" wines of the region and have been taken notice of by the press. Pascal has shared his love of wine with Elizabeth and passed on his winemaking knowledge. Together they had the audacity to start this and the will to continue. They were able to unite their strengths, their differences, their expertise and now offer wines worthy of the best restaurants.
