Devois des Agneaux rouge 2013

Languedoc AOP

The true spirit of Languedoc wine, it expresses the raw character of the stony limestone terroir, its arid soils and the ever present sun. Concentrated, densely coloured and powerful with well melted tannins, it’s absolutely ‘the’ wine to drink with Mediterranean dishes.
