More about this wine

La Clémence is an elegantly oaked red made from the Swiss grape Gamaret. The variety has found an excellent terroir in Geneva where it produces a hearty wine with complex aromas. The ageing in oak barrels (barriques) gives this wine elegance and harmony. This is an exceptionally well made wine and is a tremendous ambassador for the grape variety itself.

A deeply coloured dark purple wine with powerful aromas of black fruits such as blackberry, blueberry and cassis with peppery keys. Powerful and robust wine supported by fine tannins with a long, spicy finish.

Gastronomic suggestions - serve with red meat with sauce, a pot-au-feu with marrow, pork, game and fish.
