Our oenologists' opinion
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.
Domain and appellation
Bally's origins lie in Carbet, in the North Caribbean of Martinique, in the middle of the 18th century, near Mount Pelée. A true visionary, J. Bally created the triangular and then square bottle, which made his rum famous throughout the world. Inspired by the ancestral techniques used to make Cognac and other fine spirits, the founder of the company, Jacques Bally, an Arts & Manufactures engineer, was the first to have the intuition and genius to let his rums age in barrels. The finesse and quality of the aromas of this old rum are the hallmark of its long ageing process. The liveliness of the degree brings a certain freshness with a fat and ample mouthfeel. The palate is balanced with the aromas of the nose, with a present but well-melted woodiness that brings out the full range of flavours.
