Made from our best cuvées of this vintage, this Côtes du Rhône "Gentilhomme" has been aged in large oak barrels called "foudres" in our ancient cellars.
It has a ruby colour with purple hints. The ageing in barrels results in aromas of vanilla, cocoa, spices and leather. Best served at room temperature with provencal cuisine, red meat and cheeses.
