Advice

Serving
Best served at 16-18 °C. Enjoyable now, but will express its full potential in the next 4 years.
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 and wine pairings
Bessons Dupré is ideal with leg of lamb roasted with herbes de Provence, a nice vegetable casserole or rabbit in mustard sauce.
