Domaine Lafage - Maury Grenache 2015Sweet French Red
This is a deliciously sweet red wine. It is full-bodied and rich with intense flavours and aromas of dried red fruits, chocolate and coffee.
Deep purple hue and intense fresh fruit aromas. Beautifully balanced on the palate blending cassis and strawberries with chocolate in a luxuriously rich finish.
This sort of sweet, lightly fortified vin doux naturel red is much more commonplace in France as either an aperitif or to accompany fruit-based puddings of all kinds.
From the town of Maury, close to the Pyrenees, the Grenache grapes deliver intense flavours of dark cherries, plums and cassis. But this is relatively light and elegant on the palate and so perfect for spring consumption.
