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
Cave de Tain
Founded in 1933 by Louis Gambert de Loche, the Cave de Tain benefits from the expertise of nearly 300 winegrowers spread over about 1000 hectares of vines to produce Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, Cornas and Saint-Péray appellations as well as local wines. Terroir : Granitic in the north of the vineyard, fluvio-glacial alluvium and terraces of rolled Rhône pebbles in the southern part. Some loess veneers (wind deposits) in places. Vinification: Strict selection of the grapes according to origin and maturity. The whole of the harvest is destemmed. Vatting time of 20 days with pumping over once or twice a day depending on the progress of fermentation and tasting. Control of fermentation and maceration temperatures around 25°. Malolactic fermentation in vats before ageing. Ageing: In stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity and freshness of the fruit. No SO2 is added during vinification or maturation.
