Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its pale straw color with green highlights offers blossomed and exuberant nose of yellow fruit with fresh mint and vanilla touch and brioche notes. On the palate, this wine is balanced, net, fine, full-bodied and nervous with bubbles and a vibrant and mineral finish.
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.
