Our oenologists' opinion
Its brick red dress offers a pretty nose that opens to aromas of red fruit, raspberry and sweet spices with a fresh minty edge. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance, finesse and roundness. It is frank, with sweet spices and nervous with a finish on velvety tannins. Seductive and suave.
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.

"Le Foudre" is a large wooden bowl that allows a slow oxygenation of the wine and low evaporation.
