Reviews of purchase John Duval, "Eligo", 2009
The color of wine - rich purple-red.
The wine is well structured, has a multi-layered, intense flavor with hints of black and bright candied fruit, well integrated tannins. Rich fruit gamma shaded nuances of oak.
The distinctive aroma of the wine carries a nice palette of notes of black berries: blackberries, blueberries and nuances of dark chocolate.
The perfect combination for this wine will be meat sauce, barbecue grills, stews, game and mature cheeses.
