L de LAFFITTE LAUJAC

Tasting Notes: The bouquet of this wine is both fruity and oaky along with spicy aromas. On tasting, flavours of red fruit are found accompanied by menthol notes which endow a pleasant refreshing sensation. The oakiness is soft and harmonious giving a wine that is well-balanced with excellent structure. A congenial wine to be enjoyed at any opportunity.

Wine and food pairing : It will be the perfect partner to a joint of beef with mushrooms, a vegetable tourte, a blanquette of veal or beef bourguignon.
