2010 ()

pale rose colour, legs down the glass. Attractive strawberry, red cherry aroma, orange marmalade depth in it. The accent of the palate is on gras, richness over outright freshness. Has a flavour of pastry, mild redcurrant. It will go with Provençal dishes, grilled fish, lightly spiced foods. €6.50. “It will also go with avocado with crab, prawns,” Valéry Liotaud. 12.5°. May 2013
