Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Bright yellow colour with bright green highlights, clear and brilliant. Open nose with vegetal notes of gentian, quinine and cola, and a hint of thyme. Attack on bitterness and sweetness, tension, typical. Greedy finish on honey and aromatic herbs.

Features

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 ?

To serve, chill the glass with ice. Pour long drinks on the rocks, accompanied with an orange or lemon slice.

Domain and appellation

  • Suze

    Looking to design a different aperitif, which wouldn’t be based on wine, Fernand Moureaux got the idea in 1889 to distil gentian roots. A few years later in 1896, Henri Porte created the famous Suze bottle, which is immediately recognizable.

     

    • Production: Suze is an aperitif made from gentian, enhanced with a good mix of aromatic plant extracts, obtained by maceration. Its subtle sweet/bitter combination awakens the taste buds.
