Duennium 2006 Magnum 1.5L
- Tasting notes
- Meal suggestion
It is a ripe and complex wine, the different varies frame a mature unity.
It has an explicit, upstanding and balanced structure with ripe tannins, vital acidity and velvety texture. The aromas are intense and complex with notes of ripe fruits (dark forest fruits), star anise, cedar, cinnamon and clove. The palate is massive but fruity at the same time. The rich flavour is dominated by caramel, tobacco and creamy chocolate mousse. It has a long-lasting
finish, …extension of the moment.
Good choice with venison, joint of beef and steaks. It is also recommended with dark chocolate desserts.
A splendid, elegant, very balanced vintage basically for all varieties. After late spring and a versatile summer, the whole autumn turned warm and sunny and this has rounded up the whole vintage nicely.
