Our oenologists' opinion
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 ?
Occurring between the fermentation and bottling phases, the ageing phase is key to the vinification process. Two different types of ageing process exist. First, the stainless steel, concrete or resin tank ageing process lasts between 1 to 12 months. This system is favored for white wines, rosés, and red wines that intend to maintain a light and youthful note. The second, the barrel ageing process, can last up to 36 months. If the tank will not affect the wine’s aromas, barrels will definitely influence its taste and structure.
