Summertime Claret! This lovely Bordeaux blend pairs easy to meats, cheeses and flavourful vegetable dishes.
With the first pour, the wine is visually striking, with a dark ruby body and a scarlet rim.
On the nose, it is aromatic with fresh red fruit (think wild cherry and ripe raspberry) rising from the glass, mixed with notes of cassis and spice.
On the palate, more dark cherry and silky lavender fill the mouth with a light mineral presence and a soft, elegant finish.
This domaine is owned by Pascal Pallaruelo, a Frenchman with Spanish heritage who produces generous and enjoyable wines year after year. Part of a new generation of Bordeaux producers, Pascal runs his 20-hectare domaine with his wife Karine. The vineyards are in Entre-Deux-Mers, the village of Saint Andre-du-Bois and are farmed with “lutte raisonnee” methodology.
