AOP Côtes de Provence Red

Tasting note
Ruby with hints of violet.
Ripe red and black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant, red currant) plus warm spice (cinnamon) and Mediterranean scrubland herbs (rosemary).
Supple and fruity, well-balanced, with a pinch of Sichuan pepper on the finish.
How to serve
With its subtle hint of oak, this red Côtes de Provence is a very convivial wine and the perfect partner for a leg of lamb or meat barbecued with herbes de Provence. A smooth, easy-drinking, fruity red blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, it has a touch of Sichuan pepper.
Serve at 15-17°C.
Drinking window: five years.
