Taste: The noble character of ALIRA Grand Vin Cuvée impresses from the first pouring: an intense ruby color and a fine nose with layers of wild cherries and marzipan. Medium bodied, its taste is dominated by ripe berries and cocoa. The complex structure of this Cuvée welcomes decanting the wine an hour before serving. Can be taste young and decanted but could age 5 to 8 years in your cellar.
