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.
100% Grenache Noir
A robe of Venise red.
It is full of cherry, aniseed and subtle spicy cedar flavours. On first impressions, although monumental, plays on velvet. The tannins are supple and generous, with leather-lined plum, followed by old, full-bodied grunts of Ethiopian Moka.
To finish, a menthol celebration of the panache and daring of a kampot pepper. A wine that pays tribute to Grenache Noir, this prodigious grape emblematic of the appellation.
Lamb chops, escalivade of peppers, followed by an excellent piece of matured Comté served with fig jam...
Serve at 16°C
