The Steps 2018

€15.00 (75cl)

Blend of Merlot dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this Steps cuvée from Château Puynard shows a beautiful dark colour nuanced with purple reflections. An expressive and complex bouquet characterizes this 2018, combining red and black fruits with pleasant scents of flowers (violet, rose) extended by subtle vanilla notes. Dense on the palate, the palate is generous and greedy, heady, rich in tannins but with perfectly balanced power. Pairs well with cooked or grilled meats, dishes with sauce, game and mature cheeses.
