Tasting advices

Tasting notes
This wine’s very aromatic bouquet is redolent of spices and blackcurrant. It is also very long on the palate, with hints of black fruit, liquorice, and spices.
Food pairing
Bessons Dupré is ideal with leg of lamb roasted with herbes de Provence, a nice vegetable casserole or rabbit in mustard sauce.
