NV Patrice Colin Perles Rouges

Translucent magenta in color. The nose is shy and gives no hint of the candied fruit to come on the palate. The flavors started light, shy like the nose, with strawberries and cherries. On the mid-palate it opened up with loads of candied red fruits. Smoke from dosage with Pineau d’Aunis shows on the finish. Drink with 80+% chocolate bits or bars. Recommended. DH
