St. Chinian Classic 2012, Domaine de La Madura
Top Languedoc Reds - Decanter June 2016
The aromas are very varied: cherries, pomegranates, peanuts, lime blossom and leather combine to form a typical, harmonious bouquet.
The wine is full-bodied and fresh on the palate, with great length and the same aromas, making this a great accompaniment to gourmet dishes.
With its balance and freshness, this wine may be enjoyed with a wide range of foods such as Mediterranean and meat dishes, particularly lamb and veal. Try it with a “navarin” of lamb, for example.
This wine is at its best served at a temperature of around 18 °C. If served young, the wine should be aerated. Though very pleasant to drink when young, it will increasingly express the scents of the ‘garrigue’ as it matures.
