PalateFull-bodied and silky with lovely balance and considerable elegance.
Serve withThis wine is a fine match for all seafood such as crab soufflé, grilled lobster or salmon gravlax, as well as for truffle-studded poultry and small game. As far as cheese is concerned, a dry goat’s cheese or aged Parmesan would be perfect with this Grand Cru.
