Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Its deep straw color announces a nose with a full bouquet and aromas of dry hazelnuts and nuts. The palate is full-bodied, big, round, bold and long with spicy notes. This Port is both suave and full-bodied.

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.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

The world’s oldest appellation would have French origins! Henry of Burgundy would have exported Burgundy vine stocks after he married the daughter of Alphonse VI of Leon.
