Full Bodied Red
Jean Leon departed from the French port of Le Havre as a stowaway on a ship bound for the USA. A sailor soon discovered him. In a unexpected act of generosity, he decided to conceal the young man's presence. Vinya Le Havre is a tribute to the silent complicity of a stranger who changed Jean Leon's lfe forever.Aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels. After bottling, the wine spends a minimum of 2 years in the cellar.Fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel vats for 12 days, with malolactic fermentation : Vintage and Image may vary
Goes very well with wild game recipes such as venison or wild boar. Serving temperature: 16
Cherry-red color of medium opacity. Aromas of preserves, confected fruit and wild berries in addition to menthol,balsamic notes against a backdrop of toasty, spiced undertones (pepper, bay leaf andvanilla). Across the palate it reveals exceptional tannins and a long finishwith a hint of tobacco leaf.
