PRESTIGE LA LONDE Rouge 2019

TASTING:
Deep purple red robe. This wine opens with grilled notes mixed with vanilla. Dense and fleshy on the palette presenting a tannic framework that provides a glimpse of its interesting ageing potential.

GRAPE VARIETIES:
65 % Syrah, 20 % Grenache, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

VINIFICATION:
De-stemming, 3 weeks of vatting, fermentation at a temperature of 28°. Pumping-over twice a day and two complete transfers during the vatting.

AGEING:
In French oak barrels (Allier) of 400 l for 12 months, 15 % of new barrels.

FOOD PAIRING:
For serving at 18°, this “Soul Wine”, with its complexity and richness, will bring out the best of an assortment of fine cold meats, a beef daub, a grilled, mature Black Angus Entrecote steak, deer with morel mushrooms flambé with cognac, medallions of bison with girolle mushrooms or a hearty cheese like Epoisses, Munster or Mont d’Or. For an instant gourmet treat: try it with a square of intense black chocolate.

BEST TO DRINK: 5 years.
