€550 Flacon de 10cl

We’re taking you to the Central Loire Valley with this red Menetou-Salon. First, take a minute to admire its garnet red colour and raspberry pink rim. Then, delight in its red fruit driven nose with cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes, followed by the delicately floral notes that complete its bouquet. Once on the palate, you’ll discover a full and fleshy wine with a lovely lively touch.
