The Chef and the sommelier of the restaurant l’Auberge des Cimes , in saint-Bonnet-le-Froid, recommend “the saddle of lamb cooked in its crust of hay cistre spiced with the wolf, the whole being served with a potato estouffe with boletus as an ideal companion to the Coursodon rouge “le Paradis saint-Pierre”.

Second sorting when arriving at the winery. The grapes are destemmed. Maceration and fermentation in open vats during 18 days punching the cap twice a day. Ageing in oak for 15 months. Research of intense and delicate tannins. We do not fine the Paradis Saint-Pierre red to respect the maximum typicity of the terroir.
