Vanligt pris 135 kr Rea

This is the second vintage of this wine made of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that we bring to Sweden. Compared to the 2016 vintage, the 2018 one comes with a much higher aromatic intensity (red and black fruits) while keeping the purity and genuineness of its predecessor. A great wine to drink now, and one showing great ageing potential as well. Once again the Perraud brothers offer us a hard to beat price for value deal.

A perfect wine to surprise family and friends around a meal of roasted beef with garlic or of 7-hour lamb. Enjoy !
