Tasting note

Deep and intense in colour, the 2010 Chénas reveals black fruit aromas with a touch of spice. On tasting, the tannins are soft and nicely integrated and outline great structure. An interesting finish of black fruit and currants.

Wild game, meat dishes with sauces, roasts, charcuterie and cheese.
