COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Après 4 ou 5 années de fût le chouchenn base du TARA est assemblé avec d’autres chouchenn mûris en cave, afin de créer un hydromel délicatement parfumé et boisé. Il est élevé en demi-sec, donc peu chargé en sucre naturel.

Le chouchenn Tara se consomme nature, à l’apéritif ou le soir entre bons amis ! Il accompagne des desserts fins peu sucrés.
