Very dark and complex, the Michel Gassier Lou Coucardie Red 2012 is a red wine that’s not to be missed. A deep, nearly black, color in the glass, the nose shows intense aromas. Notes of dark berries, spice, eucalyptus, and vanilla abound and introduce the rich palate. The texture of the wine is lush and velvety, yet still bright. Vivid flavors of fresh fruits abound and mingle with lip-smacking tannins.
This red wine is enjoyable now and will also cellar for up to ten years.
