Our oenologists' opinion
Golden colour with a few mahogany tints. Pretty powerful nose, original of praline, dried banana, salted butterscotch, notes of apricot jam. Beautiful balance, powerful, full-bodied, fine and elegant at the same time, creamy notes that cover the mouth, great character of candied fruit, salted butterscotch, praline, peanuts. Tense finish on the finesse despite the degree.
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.
