Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Dark garnet colour. The nose is still dominated by toasted wood, lightly roasted followed by aromas of pepper, boxwood and liquorice. Beautiful balance on a frank, full-bodied wine, the character is frank and the tannins are ripe. Beautiful straightforward finish which has yet to melt.
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
When it comes to wine, the colours are particularly deep this year. The aromas are sharp with a beautiful intensity of ripe fruit and the concentration of tannins and anthocyanins are close to the excpetional 2016 vintage. The quality tank by tank is very consistent. The wine presents a good structure, volume and balance. 2018 is a vintage that has come a long way!
