More about this wine

They still have the fresh grapey fruit, red berry and typical Gamay raspberry, violet and strawberry aromas of the Sept Vignes but are just that bit fuller. I might just be influenced by the name (which means red cherries), but I do get that red cherry flavour on the palate. Again a flexible wine, the ideal companion for regional dishes such as Poulet de Bresse à la Crème or with mushroom-based dishes (especially morels, if you can get them), but will also go well with white meats such as pork, especially gammon and ham.
