Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark brick red dress offers a bouquet, pure and elegant roasted black fruit, licorice and balsamic with woody notes. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance, finesse and roundness. It is frank and full with notes of truffle and fresh mint. Its finish is highlighted by beautiful and outstretched coated lies on silky tannins.
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.
