Lescaneaut 2014

Vintage a bit complicated at first with a spring too cold and a rainy July. But, our hopes were fulfilled with a beautiful Indian summer that allowed a beautiful end of maturation of grapes and therefore very pretty.

Awakening of the senses: Garnet red color. Aromas of crisp red fruits. Soft palate with a lot of freshness. Wine of “friends” to taste directly on the fruit and the roundness with 90% of merlot. Acidulous wine. Perfect on everyday dishes, chickens, to accompany a salty pie or a good pizza.
