Red 2O17, Cuvée Mailys
Beautiful dark garnet colour with purple highlights; the initial nose is an exploding bouquet of red fruit; blackcurrant and blueberry dominate; In a second phase, a hint of liquorice appears, followed by smoky and wild notes, giving birth to discreet and elegant violet fragrance.
After these youthful qualities, the wine's structure settles in on the palate and reveals more evolved notes such as thyme; a slightly gamey finish. The tannins are well-coated, the acidity is perfect for maintaining a very fresh wine.


Accompaniment
Perfectly suited with grilled red meats, lamb chops or fresh goat cheese. To be served slightly chilled, 15/16 °C would be perfect.
