Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its dark ruby color offers a fresh nose of red fruits, cassis and menthol. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank, full, round and nervous. It has a beautiful envelope, character and freshness. Its finish is stressed by ripe, coated and satin tannins.

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.
