Well-rounded

Its golden color with green highlights offers a blossomed nose with brioche and vanilla, mint, dried fruit, apricot and almond. As for the taste, this wine is soft with a coated round and velvety 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.

Style ? Dry wines are acidic, lively and fresh while sweet wines are soft and feel round in the mouth.

Do you know ?

Used in the preparation of sweet and mellow wines, the fungus Botrytis cinerea covers the grapes of a "noble rot" to concentrate their sugars and aromas.
