Tasting comments :
Coming from the best area of the estate, Domaine de la
Chaumiere has attractive bright robe with ruby glints.
It has elegance on the nose with hints ripe Merlot fruit.
Good complexity on the palate with red berry flavours,
well structured without being aggressive.
Moderate. Drink with meat (entrecote à la bordelaise) game
