The fruity aromas appear as soon as a glass is poured.
The first nose is flattering, Swirling reveals an aromatic explosion of berries with dominanat wild strwberry aromas.


A soft, silky attack, full-bodied with a borad range of aromas as complex as the bouquet. The tannins are cheerful and generous. A fairly long finish, rich in alcohol.
Le Colombier de Brown Red 2016 is a generous, modern wine, an excellent example of this rich vintage.
