There's nothing more aromatic than kefta kebabs with roasted red pepper aioli - except maybe Fronsac Chartier Bordeaux Rouge! This wine's aromas inspired the recipe, because the combination of the roasted red pepper and harissa share the same aromatic profile. More generous and full-bodied than its predecessors, this Bordeaux remains elegant, perfumed and slender with a long, somewhat mineral finish. A recipe developed by François Chartier, creator of harmonies.
