The 2018 Mélange Rouge is a wine of intense perfumed aromatics that leap from the glass. Blackberry compote, dark chocolate, kirsch liqueur and toasted vanilla seamlessly integrate with a savory character of cured meats, black pepper and iodine. The wine is beautifully textured on the palate with ample round and supple tannins that are balanced by mouth-watering acidity.
