Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
With a deep colour, Louis Jadot produces a powerful wine with intense red fruits and spices aromas. It is a structured wine with a very nice balance. It will perfectly match with sophisticated dishes like red meat "in sauce" (boeuf bourguignon), marinated game or quite strong cheeses.
This wine will certainly improve up to 15 to 20 years in very good conditions of temperature and humidity
