VIGNELACROIX ROUGE

The intensity and elegance of the La Clape terroir united in a splendid Italian bottle.
Raised in old oak barrels, the nose is captivating with its complex bouquet of blackcurrants, spices and garrigue. The attack presents a silky and balanced mouth, even in its long finish. The tannins are still firm, but should soften after a year of laying down. To be savoured preferably with game, duck breast or rib steak.
