V. & S. Perraud - Cab à l'Ouest 2016 (rött/red) : A happy walk in the fields
This vintage made of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is a unpretentious but genuine and pure red wine, which will give you the same kind of joy than a small cottage house, a relaxed day out walking in nature and enjoying the simple things of life. Red berries aromas, balanced tannins and a nice ending make it a perfect wine to drink with family or friends around a meal of roasted beef with garlic or of 7-hour lamb. Enjoy !
