Le Rêve du Comte
This wine is a lovely, deep, almost garnet-red colour.
The bouquet is pleasant with hints of fresh blackcurrant, flowers (wilted rose, violet), as well as red-berry fruit, such as strawberries, and a slight minty aroma.
The suppleness of the first impression on the palate follows through with lovely balance, fruity flavours, and some toasty overtones. This wine still has all its youthful vigour, with powerful tannin and the potential to age well for years to come.
This wine can be paired with starters, white meats, vegetables & red meats.
