Reviews of purchase John Duval, "Eligo", 2008
Wine saturated purple-red color.
The wine has excellent tannins provide the basis for the perception of rich fruit. On the palate the wine feels fresh natural acidity and complex interweaving of colors, combining notes of black fruit and wood tones of French oak.
Bright aroma of the wine is filled with tones of blueberry and blackberry.
The wine goes well with meat dishes, game and cheeses.
