Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark ruby color with brick reflections offers a pretty nose, fine and elegant with aromas of roasted black fruit and licorice. In the mouth the wine has a typical nice balance, finesse and roundness. It is frank, heady with sweet spices and a mineral edge. It's finish reveals silky tannins.
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.

« Le Foudre » is a large wooden bowl that allows a slow oxygenation of the wine and low evaporation.
