Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its purple robe with garnet reflections offers an open nose with aromas of roasted black fruit, licorice, chocolate and mocha with woody notes. In the mouth, it is balanced and has a beautiful shell with tannins, freshness and a nice mineral and spicy finish that lingers.

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.
