Mille 1 has an intense, almost blood-like red-purple colour, thick and compact, whose colour nuances verge on aubergine skin. Clean and with a generous body, it shows its extracts with a tight, full-bodied glyceric mass dripping from the glass.
The nose is a peaceful invasion of floral scents such as cyclamen, violets and elderflower, followed by an explosion of fruity and spicy scents, above all blueberry and juniper, wood and cinnamon.
In the mouth, sweet and silky taste patterns interweave; moraine strawberry, gooseberry and plum jam alternate in a coordinated palate balance with saltiness and powerful structure. Slight notes of French oak essence quickly evaporate.
Gastronomic pairings with Mille 1 can be classic but also eclectic: grilled red meats, braised and roasted meats, or baked turbot with potatoes or pasta and beans with fried prawns, sweetbreads and stewed fifth quarter or baby octopus salad.
To be served at a temperature between 16 and 18° C in a wide-bowled close tulip-shaped glass.
Ruby red, the bouquet opens with strong fruity notes, followed by light spicy notes in the finish, silky and soft on the palate.
