Tasting

The color is a brillant and shiny red. The bouquet initially expresses itself with notes of roasted peppers and subsequently issues aromas of olive, thyme and rosemary. The beginning in the mouth is both fresh and perfumed, the power then comes up with the " peppery " accents and the silkiness of Syrah, to finish with a surprising and long lasting roundness. A powerful fresh wine, with an acidity that will make Vespro a wine that can be drunk from its early age and a reserve wine.

Ideal complements

To combine with "confite" lamb shank, seabass with grilled pepper and "confits" onions, Occitan-style pieds-paquets.
