Food Pairings for Château Morrisette Chambourcin
Aromas of dark cherries and fresh berries lift from this deep magenta wine, augmented by notes of black tea and sagebrush. A pleasantly crisp entry quickly fills the mouth with pie cherry, strawberry jam, and blueberry flavors, sparked with a faint suggestion of black pepper. Gentle, velvety tannins ease to reveal sun dried fruit in the lingering finish. Chambourcin is an exceptionally smooth and food-friendly wine.
