Description

The Birichino Grenache Old Vines Besson is a delicious red wine that originates from France. It is made from Grenache grapes that are at least 50 years old, giving the wine a unique flavor. The wine has an intense ruby color and a powerful bouquet with aromas of ripe fruit, spices, and garrigue. On the palate, it is full-bodied and well-balanced, with concentrated flavors of black fruits, licorice, and pepper. The finish is long and persistent, with velvety tannins. This is a complex and elegant wine that pairs well with grilled meats, game, and strong cheeses.

Wine tasting notes

This Grenache is a stunner - from the beautiful Besson Vineyard in California's Central Coast. The wine has intense aromas of dark fruit, blackberry and raspberry jam, violet, rose petal and lavender. On the palate it's nicely balanced with flavors of ripe red fruits, pepper and spice. The tannins are fine-grained and provide good structure for aging. This would be perfect with roast lamb or beef, as well as hard cheeses like Pecorino Toscano or Parmigiano Reggiano.
