AOC Languedoc Pézenas Rouge
"La Reserve" reflects the elegance and unique personality of the Pezenas terroir. Its enticing aromas of ripe berries, cocoa, leather and spice give way to red fruit, cassis and a touch of earth, supported by smooth silky tannins. To appreciate its rich complexity and delicate finish, it is best to decant this wine before serving.
