Our oenologists' opinion
Power and persistence are the most appropriate words to define this garnet-colored Porto. Releasing fragrances of thyme and roasted coffee, it associates in mouth a plump attack with smooth and pleasant tannins. The tasting is ending with a persistent finish.
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 world’s oldest appellation would have French origins! Henry of Burgundy would have exported Burgundy vine stocks after he married the daughter of Alphonse VI of Leon.
