Food Pairing:Beef, game, dishes in cream sauce Region: Loire / France Intensely purple/black in color, almost opaque. Deeply concentrated, tight and badly well structured, the palate is immense in its width and length showing an abundance of blackberry, fruits of the forest and spiced, wooded tastes. The company finish means you won’t forget this one easily. Peppered beef with mushrooms and glazed onions or a simple filet mignon with green peppercorn cream sauce. Even less spicy dishes like roast leg of lamb with mustard and red wine sauce. Otherwise the conventional pairing could be venison or game.
