Lovely pale yellow colour. It's pleasant nose opens up with mineral and flower notes. The fruit is pure and elegant on the palate, with acidulous notes of fresh grapes. Agreeable and refreshing, it is ideal with seafood, fish or as an aperitif
A good structure and a pleasant balancebetween acidity and sweetness. This is a typical soft Bordeaux with all its qualities of elegance, finesse and body. The wine is made to be drunk relatively young but it may improve with one to two years of maturation in bottle.
Generous, balanced and round on the palate, with firm, ripe tannins… and with its lovely brilliant garnet colour, the Michel Lynch red displays notes of blackcurrant and fresh bread, with an overall impression of ripeness and power.Enjoy with rack of lamb and mint sauce or T-bone steak with garlic butter also enjoyable with soft cheese.
