Succulent, spicy, muscular.
The little brother to Le Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec & Petit Verdot.
Expect roasted rosemary, dried herbs, warm plum compote and toasted spices with dark chocolate and flame charred bell peppers aromas. It is smooth and woven; the succulent palate is an echo of the nose. Roasted spice and rich black fruit, pipe tobacco and cocoa flavours linger on a medium-length finish. A muscular wine with the same brooding lineage as big brother.
Pair: Grilled or roasted meats, stews, puy lentils with savoury herbs, aged hard cheeses.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive
