The Rupert & Rothschild Classique enchants with its look alone. A powerful dark red presents itself to the connoisseur, in young years a slightly violet colour can be detected at the rim. The beautiful smell of cranberries flows into the nose, the aroma of raspberry dominates the bouquet. On the palate, this fruity impression is confirmed, underlines by earthy and mineral tones. The lingering aftertaste with nuances of cinnamon and walnut spoils the tongue long after the last taste.Food Pairing
