Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its straw color offers a pretty wooded nose, vanilla, exotic fruits and mango. On the palate, this distinctive wine is round and spicy with a coated finish.

Features

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.

Do you know ?

The bâtonnage (stirring) consists of stirring the wine while it ages with a long stick in order to bring the lees, or sediments, back at the top of the barrels. This process helps give the wine a buttery taste.
