WINEMAKER NOTES

Originally known as Domaine du Tracot, now-called Domaine Dubost has been owned by the Dubost family since 1902. Its origin was found in writings and traces on the main building. With his two sons, Corentin and Joffrey, winemaker Jean-Paul Dubost hopes that the 4th generation will continue the family tradition in providing wines that reflect their terroir, the culture of the vineyard and respecting the environment and soil.

TASTING NOTES

A beautiful purple with iris and peony aromas on the nose along with ripe cherry, accompanied by spicy notes that develop into a powerful mouth feel and greedy tannins.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

This wine will partner well with red meats, grilled meats, game, and cheeses.
