Reviews of purchase L'Etoile Lalande de Pomerol AOC, 2015
The wine is deep garnet red.
The taste of wine is rich and mature, has silky tannins, notes of ripe dark plum and tones of small berries, nuances of dark chocolate, hazelnuts, spices and skin. The finish is long, with accents of spices and dried berries.
The aromatic bouquet of wine is complex, filled with notes of ripe cherry and blackberry framed by the nuances of vanilla, tobacco, mocha and sweet spices. A special charm to the bouquet is added by shades of smoked meats.
The wine will make the perfect pair of dishes from rabbit, game, white and red meat with complex sauces, dishes with truffles and mature cheeses.
