history
In 1957, around forty winegrowers grouped together to confront the economic difficulties of the era, pooling far more than mere financial concerns. At the time, Robert, Marcel, Yvon, Geneviève and the others, hailing from the same terroir, hewn from the same rock and sharing the same time-honoured values, set up their cooperative at the top of the hill in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. “They chose to share their experience, their expertise and their dreams„
Tasting notes
Deep ruby color. The nose has aromas of ripe fruits (plum, blackcurrant, blackberry) and violet, accentuated by hints of spices (black pepper). Full-bodied on the palate with soft tannin, the wine is well balanced between freshness and roundness. Persistent finish of cooked fruits.
Food pairing
Enjoy chilled (57-60°F), this red wine goes perfectly with fine delicatessen meats, salads, roasted white meats (such as grilled chicken with estragon), and soft cheeses.
