Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its bright coral color with an orange reflections and nose offers a nice bouquet of cherries and stone with smoky and mineral notes. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance and finesse. It is frank, nervous, tense and typed with a coated finish with fine and creamy bubbles.
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.
Do you know ?
The rosé champagnes can be developed by bleeding but also by assembly of red and white wines. The appellation Champenoise is the only one with the right to use this process by assembling.
