Description

Michel Goubard’s family has grown wine in the village of Saint-Désert since the 17th century, and his sons, Pierre-François and Vincent, proudly continue the tradition of quality at this venerated Côte Chalonnaise domaine situated on Mont-Avril.

Tasting Notes: Offers ripe raspberry and cherry fruit on the nose, with hints of
spice and earth. Soft, supple tannins on the palate lead to a
lingering finish.

Serve With: Enjoy with strong cheeses, game birds, stewed meats, or hearty baked dishes such as Shepherd’s Pie.
