The Cuvée-R Selection is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot: it is a mature dry wine, ruby in colour with aromas of plums, cherries and possibly dark chocolate, and in the background notes of vanilla, cloves and burnt wood intertwine. Strong tannins are felt in the mouth, it is broad and soft, rather warm, with a stronger body and a longer aftertaste. It has great character and elegance. It goes perfectly with complex meat dishes, game and various dishes with reductions.
