Well-rounded

Its dark garnet color offers a nice open nose of black fruits with a hint of vanilla and wood. As for the taste, it has a nice balance, a fine tannic structure and has a beautiful envelope.

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 ?

Between Pauillac and Margaux located on the left bank of the Gironde, the Saint-Julien has the smallest area of the Medoc.
