La Croix Chaptal, Le Secret de Gellone
A deep garnet-red colour with hints of velvety purple. The nose is complex with candied fruit with aromas of spices, “garrigue” and black berries. A round and supple palette with soft and blended tannins. Liquorice blends with spices and pepper. A fine balance leaning towards softness and combining freshness and complexity.
It is already pleasant to drink but has ageing potential of seven to eight years minimum.
This wine accompanies vegetarian dishes as well as tagine, grilled meat, roasted lamb, pasta, poultry and cheese… Can also be enjoyed all on its own in front of a roaring fire!
