The best thing about my job has to be having the ability to open and try whatever I believe will help sell the product to the customers – unfortunately this doesn’t stretch to Petrus and Romanee-Conti, however it does mean I can try things which I probably wouldn’t normally pay for just to satisfy my curiosity.
The colour was a beautiful bright ruby that seemed to shimmer in the light. On the nose it was a bowl of fresh picked red berry fruit from cherries, to strawberries and a touch of raspberries in there. The most intriguing part was the finish – it had a definite spicy oak touch to it – white pepperish.
Delicious, easy-drinking vino to enjoy with some good company.
