Tsar Pierre Le Grand 2017, Château Eugénie, Cahors

$27.50Price

Tsar Pierre Le Grand is aged 12 – 15 months, half of the volume in stainless-steel vats and the other half in wood barrels, coming together just before bottling.  The result is a dark, almost opaque colored wine, with aromas of violet and lavender, prune, and vanilla. On the palate, the potency of the Malbec grape, is tamed by the subtly of the Merlot grapes.

 

Tsar Pierre Le Grand pairs well with beef, lamb and lasagna
