Les Aspres Pierre Cros

The dark, blood-red color matches well to the intense bouquet, dominated by smoky flavours and fresh cherries. Full of power and arrogance, you should give him a large glass so that it can properly unfold its bouquet you certainly will enjoy: licorice, vanilla, freshly cooked jam, blond tobacco and cocoa.

Mineral acidity on the palate, together with pleasant roundness, slight sweetness and an explosion of spices on the tongue: star anise, cinnamon, a little pepper and fennel seed. The restrained but concise tannin structure makes this pure Syrah to a full and harmonious wine, with an almost endless finish... It look like it has especially been made for lovers of fine and expressive wines with a penchant for extreme taste sensations. You may enjoy it now without hesitating, or leave it to ripen in your cellar for many more years.

FOOD MATCHES FOR CARNIVORES: Rump steak with sour cherries, lamb tagine with prunes and almonds, “real” spaghetti carbonara, rabbit pâté ...

FOOD MATCHES FOR HERBIVORES: With dried fruits and oriental spices stuffed cabbage, linguini with pesto of sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese and hazelnuts.
