Wine tasting

Château la Gasparde - Côtes de Castillon 2006

A granate colour with orange hues. A closed bouquet with notes of cacao and coffee. The palate is marked by notes of oak and preserved red berries. The finish is round, dominated by soft tannins. A wine ready to drink with meals such as pigeon and poultry.
