The Deux Verres Reserve is a floral and herbal wine with touches of red berries and hints of cherries. The soft tannins make this a food friendly wine and delicious for drinking right away or even cellaring for at least five years. Made in an Old World style, this wine is beautifully earthy and an elegant ode to our winemaker's home in Burgundy.
Sweet and floral, with fresh flowers and a touch of hay on a background of red berries and red cherries, with just a hint of spiciness in the finish.
