Our oenologists' opinion
Old gold colour, clear and brilliant. Open nose, with notes of apple, mirabelle plum and vanilla, a touch of white pepper and milk caramel. Round, balanced, full-bodied attack, nice character on apple syrup, pepper and vanilla, floral hint. Spicy finish, the alcohol is well melted and balanced by the sugar. Nice persistence on vanilla wood, candied mirabelle plum and chilli.
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 ?
In 1588, the “Calvador" ship of the Invincible Armada was wrecked on the coast of Normandy and gave her name to a local place. This name was then attributed 200 years later to the area and then to the beverage.
