The color is a beautiful deep garnet. On the nose, the Viala is powerful, revealing notes of ripe fruit and violet. Very beautiful attack, smooth tannins, woody notes, beautiful balance, infinite length... On the palate, this cuvée is very greedy! The Viala has great ageing potential. Best served at 18°C, to accompany grilled red meats, game or fine cheeses.
A generous, broad red, with olive tapenade underpinnings flanking the raspberry reduction and cherry filling flavors, infused with licorice, milk chocolate and floral accents. Hints of dried herb, cured meat and mineral are structured by polished tannins on the finish. Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. Drink now through 2025. 680 cases made, 200 cases imported.
