Cuvée Dame de Piegros - Côtes de Provence AOP

Deep red robe. Intense nose of black fruits (blackcurrant) accompanied by discrete and well-melted woody notes that give the wine its character. On the palate, full-bodied, framed wine thanks to silky tannins. The gustative balance between sensations acid, alcohol, tannins guarantees a keeping potential of 3 to 5 years. It all depends on the taster's preference for a virile young wine or a more supple and more complex wine.
