The finest batches of Dourthe N°1 must spend 12 months in new French oak barrels.
Dourthe N°1 red is deep garnet in color. The alluring bouquet offers red and blackberry fruits, accentuated by a hint of delicately spiced oak. Initially concentrated on the palate, the wine reveals intense, fragrant fruit, developing generous, fleshy mouthfeel. With its dense, lovely deep structure, it evolves against a backdrop of well-balanced, silky tannins. This is an altogether beautifully balanced wine that culminates in an impressively long, savoury finish.
Red and white meat (entrecôte bordelaise, minute steak, beef tartare, neck of lamb, leg of mutton, duck magret), vegetables and side dishes such as gratin dauphinois and cheese.
