TERRE DE PIQUE SÈGUE

« Domain Great Vintage » Montravel rouge

15 months ageing process in French oak barrel
Grape variety: Merlot 90 %, Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 %
Annual production: 15 000 bottles

WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE … IT’S TERROIR :

Montravel rouge is a sumptuous wine similar to great wines like Saint-Emilion, close ground.

It meets very high standard productions conditions particularly in terms of plantation density (5000 vine plants per hectare) and restriction of yields.
The clay-limestone soils of the hills of Libournais are the perfect soil for red vines to express their variety of flavours

TASTING :

It has the typical colour of great wines, deep red garnet. The nose is expressive.
It is well balanced on the palate and has a good tannic structure.
Strong flavours are those of black fruits, cherry, underlined by woody vanilla. Finish is intense and lingering.

SUGGESTION FOR ACCOMPANIMENT :

Serve at room temperature, needs to be aerated before tasting.
Refined dishes like game, poultry, red meat served in sauce or even strong cheese will be this great Merlot best allies.

ALONG WITH :

Haunch of Venison Saint-Hubert
Hare à la Royale
And also Foie Gras: even better with a great red wine!
And for dessert: chocolate based of course!
