Wine of deep red color.
Wine with a very complex, elegant, concentrated but soft, perfectly balanced taste, in which powerful tannins are balanced with bright tones of ripe fruit. Special charm Le Dix gives a rich finish of the nuances of tobacco, vanilla, coffee, cedar, eucalyptus, black pepper and cinnamon. Long aftertaste with a bitter nut peel accompany expressive intonation cherries.
In the saturated bouquet of wine tantalizing aromas of cherries and black berries are infused with notes of licorice, lava leaf and cedar wood.
This wine must be decanted two hours before use. Le Dix combined perfectly with mature cheeses and a variety of dishes from red meat. Worth to try it with beef ribs in truffle sauce.
