The grape variety is a gamay noir with white juice. The wine has a generous and silky taste. It is of a dark ruby colour, it has a delecate spicy nose with wild berries accents. When we taste, we feel little red fruit with slight tannins. It’s a fantastic wine with red meet of sausages. We loved il a lot !
