CHEVALIER DE BAYARD 2020
This wine comes from Aude, which is part of the southern French d'Oc area, where in ancient times they spoke Occitan and where Oc meant yes. The wine is named after France's valiant knight (chevalier in French), Pierre de Terreil, who was born at the Bayard castle at Grenoble and came to the French court in 1489.
A knight without fear and beyond reproach, Pierre Terrail, or simply the Chevalier de Bayard would no doubt be proud to drink this wine that bares his name. It is always a crowd pleaser as the Chevalier has the particular ability to cater to most wine drinkers’ tastes.
Skilfully crafted from three grape varieties, giving it excellent depth of flavour, this is a wine for all occasions.
A vibrant cherry fruit flavour, light and elegant with a hint of plum followed by a delicately smooth finish.
Serve at cellared temperature or slightly chilled and best enjoyed young!
