It's red with a violet edge. Aromas of coffee and wood. It is a  with a harmonious flavours.
The Château La Gaffelière is the ideal wine to pair it with wild boar sausages.
We tasted this wine at a wine tasting.

I like to surprise my family with this wine.
Has a strong colour. In my opinion, the most noticeable smell is raspberry. Fleshy, smoothy.
We had it with a deer stew.

I opened the bottle for my best friend.
It had a deep colour at first sight. Smells of wood. Softer than 2016.
I enjoyed it with a beef dish.
