The Grande Provence Red 2012

A perfectly balanced, full bodied and multi-dimensional red blend. The nose and palate are made up of layers of plum, mint, dark chocolate, spice and cigar box aromas. The mouth feel is soft, well rounded with an elegant and lingering finish.

Bordeaux blends are the perfect partner to lamb, beef, game and duck. Enjoy this wine with full flavoured, slow roasted red meat dishes, lamb cutlets with rosemary and creamy veal saltimbocca.
