Named after a former street in the village of La Livinière, Minervois: Boulevard Napoléon is the partnership between restaurateurs Trevor Gulliver, the Chef Fergus Henderson and winemaker Benjamin Darnault.
Translucent cardinal red with reflections of garnet.
Delicious and juicy, this is a lighter bodied Cinsault with lots of red fruits (some Cinsault are darker-fruited). This vintage tastes not unlike Gamay; it can be chilled too.
Underneath the juicy fruits there are attractive bleu fruit flavours and some black pepper.
Mixed grills, game, pork roasts, cold meat and cheese platters…
Serve between 14 and 16°C
Aging potential: At least 8 years.
