Our oenologists' opinion
Its purple color offers a slightly woody nose and red fruit, cherry and cassis. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance, finesse and freshness. He is frank, vinous, full, fleshy, nervous and has a nice envelope with a good length on tight tannins, coated and satin. Lovely wine.
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 ?
Le Cheval Noir comes from the legend that an elegant horse would harvest the vineyard.
