Debeur, Guide gourmand des Québécois - Thierry Debeur (Québec) February 2016
L'entreprise bordelaise Barton & Guestier produit dans cette région du sud de la France, en pays d'Oc plus précisément, faisant bénéficier cette appellation de leur savoir-faire girondin (région de Bordeaux). Nous avons goûté ici un vin aux parfums de fruit noir, de mûre sauvage et de cassis avec une note de cèdre, de vanille légère et de poivron vert. Capiteux, ample, long et fruité en bouche il possède des tanins fins et serrés avec une finale délicatement épicée. Le servir en carafe en même temps qu'une côte de bœuf aux cèpes , un filet d'agneau rôti ou des rognons de bœuf aux champignons. Bon rapport qualité prix.
