Our oenologists' opinion
Its straw color offers a bouquet and fulfilled nose of candied yellow fruit with a hint of toasted almonds. On the palate, this wine is balanced, full-bodied, full, dense, and has a character with mineral and chalky smoky notes. It is strong with middle and melting bubbles.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
