A beautiful pomegranate colour characterises this wine from the south of Berry. Its expressive nose reveals some beautiful red fruit aromas. The freshness of the attack exposes the soul of the Pinot Noir and of the Gamay, while the finesse and elegance of its tannins lead to a spicy note. A truly pleasurable wine to be sampled between friends. When Châteaumeillant rhymes with gourmand !
