Père Fouras Vins de Pays are traditionally made wines that offer a delicious taste of France’s Atlantic coast. The warm, generous wine has a rich , powerful bouquet. It goes beautifully with all sorts of meats and cheeses and is a special treat at a barbecue (grilled meat and fish).
Attractive, intense, and brilliant ruby-red color with purplish-red highlights.
Subtle overtones of ripe red fruit such as strawberries and black cherries.
Full – bodied and smooth with tannin that will soften beautifully with age.
Fairly complex on the palate with the vigour and freshness of a young wine.
