Bonpas Chateau

On the aromatic side notes of big fat almost overly ripe strawberries, blueberries, cactus pear and a tad of black licorice.

On the palate moderate tannins, rhubarb pie, white pepper, blackberry and blueberry clafouti. Moderately long finish. Match with duck breast with cherry preserves, steak tartare or Greek Keftedes.
