Our oenologists' opinion
It garnet color with brick highlights announces a nose of roasted dark fruits and licorice. The palate is balanced, fleshy, vinous,nervous and characterized by spices. The finish offers tight, coated and melted 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.

- Viticulture: Those established partnerships allow high-end plot selections. The winegrowers are tied to the Mouton Cadet maison through defined specifications.
