Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Its clear color with green reflections offers a rather mineral nose, on the flint. On the palate, this wine has a rich and mineral attack, full and fat. Finely acidulated and mineral, on flint and lime.

Robe
Green colored tint

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.
