At the edges, there is also a color transition into garnet red. When swirling the wine glass, one can perceive a perfect balance in this red wine, as it does not stand out on the glass walls in a watery, syrupy or liqueur-like manner. This French cuvée shows wonderfully expressive notes of raspberries, blackberries and black currants in the glass. These are joined by hints of vanilla.
