Classic French red wines are refinement and nobility in every sip. They are characterized by a deep fruit and berry bouquet with notes of ripe juicy cherries, sweet raspberries and currants, as well as prunes. They are complemented by hints of flowers and spices. We should also mention the original aftertaste. Red wine may be a delicate continuation of the main composition or may delight the taste buds with bright contrasts, spices, playful vanilla, enveloping chocolate and tart tannins. Drinks from the Bordeaux and Languedoc-Roussillon regions are especially popular. They are served with different kinds of white and red meat, mushrooms, vegetable salads and casseroles, and cheeses.
