Our oenologists' opinion
Its golden green color offers a rich and powerful nose, candied fruits, ginger notes, beeswax and white chocolate. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance, full-bodied, round, with a well-marked character on candied fruits. The sweetness is well melted and without heaviness. Final frank, straight and tense.
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.
