Tasting Note

Powerful, complex aromas, very distinguished.

They evoke red fruit (raspberry, cherry …) and flowers (violet, rose, carnations …) pepper and liquorice. With age the wine delivers a nose of leather and sumptuous venison.

Keep for 10 20 years.

Allen Meadows’ Burghound

Light but not invisible wood serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the brooding and reserved dark berry liqueur aromas that are liberally laced with spice, underbrush and once again sauvage hints. Like the Lavaux, the bigger and more imposingly powerful flavours are tautly muscular with just as much minerality on the serious and equally built-to-age finish that displays some youthful austerity. 93 Points, January 2017

Food Pairing

A great partner of guinea fowl, chicken, duck, rack of lamb or a simple steak (no heavy sauces. Also good partner with cheeses (not pungent)
