Powerful aromas of very ripe fruit (blackcurrant, cherry) and liquorice, dried flowers and smoky notes. Great full-bodied on the palate, combining a lot of substance and freshness. The tannins finely wrap the whole palate, which ends on a beautiful length.
Power and tradition
Up to 15 years old. Serve between 15 and 16°C after one hour of aeration in a decanter.
Ideal to accompany red meats where ripe and velvety tannins absorb the bleeding from the dish. Try with a grilled rib of beef, wild boar stew, roast deer or braised beef tail. A more evolved Marie from 5 to 10 years old will do wonderfully well on dishes in Burgundy sauce.
