Negru de Purcari [Black of Purcari] is the legendary signature red wine of Purcari winery that put Moldova on the world wine map of noble blends. “Like and Iron Fist in a Velvet Gove” this wine is called also the “Queen’s Wine” as it has been a favorite of British Royalty from Queen Victoria to Elizabeth II. In 1878, a small vineyard of Purcari from Basarabia (old name of Moldova) entered the Paris World Exhibition for wine. During a closed door session, the jury preferred the dry, densely-colored red wine awarding it the Grand Prix, and was fully convinced that they honored a newly designed blend from the Bordeaux region. A mix of red and black fruits, character together with spice from its three-year sojourn in French oak barrels. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, and some beguiling earthy notes from its bottle age.
