Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its garnet color offers a nice open nose with aromas of caramel, roasted black fruit and licorice. As for the taste, this wine is straight, round and ripe with tannins that fond and cool down on beautiful notes of juniper and licorice.

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 beautiful alternative to the prestigious great growths of Bordeaux, the second wines promise feats of great vintage years. From the youngest of large plots of Bordeaux chateaux, they live on the same land and benefit from a unique expertise in viticulture and vinification.
