A radiant amber gold catches the light and reflects it vividly.
The 2016 Cuvée Constance is like a beautiful fragrant mosaic of aromas - from deep honey, candied orange, sweet blackcurrant, rhubarb to exotic passion fruit. Each breath brings out new nuances of fragrance, such as fine Earl Grey tea, spicy cardamom and stimulating galangal. Fresh accents of lemon balm, nettle and redcurrant leaves ignite a veritable firework of the senses in this remarkable cuvée.
Silky and complex on the palate, the wine spreads out on the tongue, offering a seductive freshness that is harmoniously embedded in the opulent sweetness. A powerful and mineral-salty structure forms the heart of the wine, while the acidity and fine tannin provide a refreshing and stimulating balance. The finish is long and highly invigorates the senses. This fantastic elixir has great ageing potential and invites you to dream and enjoy - and makes the perfect accompaniment to creative dishes.
Try this wine with a spicy grapefruit salad, refined with lemongrass and garnished with toasted pecans. For the main course, a foie gras terrini with blackberry and beetroot sorbet would go perfectly with the wine. For dessert, I recommend a rhubarb meringue tart with a hint of fresh mint.
