Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its bright brick red dress offers a nice nose with aromas of black fruits, plum and licorice. As for the taste this wine is nicely balanced. It is frank, winey, full and slightly spicy with a finish of tannins that blend.

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 ?

A good alternative to prestigious growths of Bordeaux, the second wines promise great vintages. From the youngest of large plots of Bordeaux castles, they live on the same land and benefit from a unique expertise in viticulture and winemaking.
