The novels Machotte AOC Gigondas by Pierre Amadieu is presented in an extremely dark, dense red with black-violet highlights. In the aromatic bouquet, aromas of plum jam and a hint of vanilla and juicy blackberries fuse with notes of Provencal wild herbs (thyme, rosemary and laurel).
These aromas also continue on the soft, balanced and delicate palate of the novel Machotte, where they lead into a long, spicy finish with black pepper. It has a full body with a strong, fleshy structure and soft, powerful and enormously balanced tannins.
We recommend it with risotto with truffles, beef stew, wild boar and vanilla ice cream with raspberry puree.
