This is Hanaé younger brother Eloi. Produced in a similar style but somewhat lighter with 115grams of residual sugar rather than 170. Still absolutely delicious and will marry fruit tarts to perfection.
Bright, dense crimson red hue. This vintage is more mature than the 2012 with black and red fruit aromas such as strawberry, blackcurrant and blackberry. It is smooth and fruity on the palate, with a good balance between structure and elegance. Nice silky tannins and a rich, delicious finish with notes of liquorice, spice and herbs. The 2013 is a more complex and substantial wine than previous vintages.
A pale yellow wine with lively, harmonious bubbles and a nose that opens with floral notes, developing after a few seconds in the glass into more fruity aromas dominated by white peach and green apple. On the palate it is creamy and well-balanced, with a pleasantly bitter finish. Perfect as an aperitif or with a meal.
Deep, dark ruby robe with inky-black hints. Black fruit on the nose, with delightful notes of blackberry, black currant and fig. Intense and full-bodied, with silky tannins, ending with a touch of bigarreau cherries in alcohol. Best matched with red meat and spicy dishes.
