Tasting Notes

A sweet red dessert wine - regarded to be 'French Port'! An experience to be believed, aging very well.

Intense garnet color, with a fruity nose with jammy notes of red fruit. On the palate, aromas of violets, black cherries and liquorice. Silky wine, ample and pleasant.

Domaine Boudau

Brother and sister Pierre and Veronique took over from their parents in 1993 and have carefully maximised the huge potential of their estate. Their wines are superb, and constantly gain more and more recognition from discerning wine lovers and critics.

The vineyard has now more than doubled in size without diminishing the quality, quite a rare achievement.
