The nose is powerful and aromatic; on the palate, initial notes of black fruits, spices and mocha lengthen over silky tannins. Perfect with duck accompanied by pea purée and grilled vegetables. Serve between 15 and 18 °c.
“Rich and velvety on the full-bodied palate, packed and stacked with plummy fruit and a hint of chocolate yet turning silky and elegant on the long finish…the 2016 Le Songe d’Éocène takes Capion to a new level. ”
