Our oenologists' opinion
Powerful wine with potential
Colourless transparent dress. Nice frank and fruity nose of white fruits, bananas and sugar cane. Full-bodied and full, well-structured, straightforward. Nice character with finesse. Beautiful straight and taut.
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 ?
The "Tafia" pirates existed in the Isles for centuries, when Father Labat in 1694 devised a more elaborate distillation of the alcohol from sugar canes. Following a few changes, this ancient remedy against fever became what we call today, rum.

Rooted in the Terroir of Martinique since 1779, the Dillon rum is named after the famous Earl Arthur DILLON.

Gold medalist in many competitions, it has had, since 1996, the AOC label (Appellation Contrôlée Martinique).
- Distillery: The distillery Dillon has been located on a former sugar plantation since 1690.
- Manufacturing: The Dillon rum is distilled in the purest tradition of Martinique, from the juice of sugar canes from the plantations of Ducos and Saint-Esprit.
