« Saturne » Red 2010 A.O.C.  COTEAUX du LANGUEDOC  - Saint Saturnin

A delicious blend of old vine Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan which combine to produce wonderful aromas. Sweet ripe strawberry fills out with nose and palate. The mid palate is firmer with more black cherry. Good length, no oak just pure intense complex flavours. Delicious.
Food and wine pairing: Saturne is a rich and balanced wine. We recommend you to drink it with red meat with dressing, game or cheese (Fleur de sauge or Bleu d’Auvergne).

30% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 25% Carignan, 20% Cinsault

Ageing : 18 months in tanks

A light ruby red colour and rapid legs announce a fruity red wine. Aromas of black cherry, plum and peppermint are also present in the mouth, tending to evolve towards prune. With plenty of bite, well-balanced and rounded, this wine can be drunk on its own during a relaxed moment.

Food and wine pairing: share it with friends accompanied by Italian pasta Bolognese for a simple but delicious meal. Poultry will be enhanced by the freshness of this wine and ratatouille will reveal its fruitiness.
