This Viognier presents rich aromas of citrus, orange peel and dried apricot, fresh pears and white peaches, plus hints of candied fruit. Delivers on the palate as well as the nose, with floral, honeyed and citrus flavours combining with chalky minerality so typical of Limari. Bright and expressive, this has a soft rounded texture and great purity.
Mainly Merlot, this is typically ripe and spicy with wild bramble flavours, tasty tannins and a lovely gutsy character. Smooth and approachable, this is drinking very well now and should suit most palates.
Claret and roast lamb go perfectly; chops cooked pink on the BBQ with rosemary or roasted with a herby sauce. Also good with farmhouse Cheddar.
DEEP RED COLOUR, WITH CHERRY COMPOTE INFUSED WITH STAR ANISE ON THE NOSE. THE CONCENTRATED PALATE IS SERIOUS AND DENSELY FRUITY, AND WELL STRUCTURED TANNINS SUGGEST GOOD AGEING POTENTIAL.
TRY WITH BEEF BOURGIGNON OR A ROASTED LEG OF LAMB. ALSO WORKS WITH CHARCUTERIE AND WITH A SEMI-SOFT CHEESE SUCH AS LIVAROT OR A SAINT-MARCELLIN.
Champagne & Sparkling:
