Ageing: Ageing takes place in oak barrels for 10 to 12 months.

Tasting:  An intense garnet color with light ruby garnet reflections.
On the nose, a very concentrated aromatic palette with ripe red and black fruits, roasted strawberries, crème de cassis and spicy notes as well as some hints of thyme and savory.
It expresses itself with a volume and density that broadly envelops the mouth, with a finish with intense tannins accompanied by sweet spices.

Food pairing:  With this wine profile, it is necessary to bring meats with texture and a bloody character for the intense fruitiness.
A roast pigeon served rosé accompanied by crunchy green peas, drizzled with the concentrated cooking juice or a nice pink duck breast, with crispy skin served with roasted white asparagus to bring texture and bitterness and flavor. a duck sauce.
