Domaine de Fontenille

Cuvée Alphonse
Luberon AOP
Red 2016
A ce vin de caractère tout en contraste, il convient d’associer des plats relativement typés et d’oser la prise de risque: daube de sanglier au chocolat par exemple. Ne vous y trompez pas, il sait aussi accompagner les desserts plus délicats.
