The 2020 Philippe Tessier Cheverny Rouge is blended with a majority of Pinot Noir, which brings spicy and floral notes as well as almond. The Gamay gives the wine intense red fruit flavors (strawberry, cherry, etc). The Côt (Malbec) participates in the structure and the frame. Overall, the wine is fruity and refreshing with fine tannins. Pair it with grilled or roasted meats, poultry, certain fish and summer fare.
