Our oenologists' opinion
Its old golden color offers a bouquet and blooming nose of dried citrus peel with finely woody, menthol and mineral notes. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank, full-bodied and sweet with a tight and vibrant final, warm and creamy at once.
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.
Style ? Dry wines are acidic, lively and fresh while sweet wines are soft and feel round in the mouth.

Used in the preparation of sweet and mellow wines, the fungus Botrytis cinerea covers the grapes of a "noble rot" to concentrate their sugars and aromas.
