  • Pairing Suggestions Vassal goes extremely well with blanquette of chicken flavored with saffron, pâté of duck foie gras with bitter chocolate, or fillet of veal with piperade or grilled aubergines.
  • Tasting Notes Le Vassal de Mercuès is a brightly colored wine. The nose has complex aromas of red fruit. In the mouth, it is bodied with very elegant tannins. The concentration makes it long on the palate with peppery and spicy tones.
