£ 17.00 tax incl.

Going up in the range of Pic Saint Loup, Cuvée Jules is a typical powerful red Languedoc. The 40% of Syrah provides a very floral nose of juicy black cherries - beautiful. On the palate, dark fruit is still leading and the spicy finish gives a complex touch. It will be just perfect paired with a duck confit.
