Our oenologists' opinion
Mahogany dress with shiny tiled reflections. Pretty nose of orange zest, kirsch, smoky, spicy notes of juniper and then dark chocolate. Nice balance, full-bodied, full-bodied, fat, character on dried fruits, hints of mocha and blond caramel. Nice straightforward, taut and elegant length.
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.

- Wine-making: The Taylor's 10 Ans is assembled from a seelection of the best wine (from one and the same year), matured in aged oak barrels for close to 20 months before continuing its maturation in bottles.
