A vivid, dark, red with flashes of violet in the glass. On the nose masses of red fruit aromas suggesting raspberry and plum with hints of cocoa and spice. On the palate, full-bodied and well structured with good length and balanced tannins. The finish is lingering with spicy notes. Try with duck ragu, marinated rib eye steak topped with melted blue cheese or braised leg of lamb with garlic.
Thérèse and Michel Riouspeyrous along with their sons, Téo and Iban, are the beating heart of Domaine Arretxea. They coax a unique expression from the varieties farmed at the foothills of the Pyrenees.
