Notes of blackcurrant, violet and raspberry combine to create a rich and intensely aromatic Saint-Chinian. The palate is deliciously indulgent, too, with its fruity character and full-body. Plus, this wine has great freshness and a subtle tonka bean finish. Pair with grilled meats for a simple and laid-back meal with friends.
