Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
A fairly deep copper colour, with a lovely frank and fruity nose of orange peel, a hint of chocolate, notes of apple and a hint of fresh spices. Beautiful balance, nice envelope, good melted sweetness, elegant, finesse, the alcohol is well melted. Nice straightforward liqueur with a good length.
- Keeping level Ready to drink
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.
