Our oenologists' opinion
Its deep garnet color introduces a pleasant fresh and exuberant nose of red fruits, cassis, peony, and violet. The palate is balanced, straight, round, and nervous. The tannins are melted and velvety.
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.
Do you know ?
The type of oak selected to build a barrel always affect the winemaking process. Its species and origin give the wine different aromas and structures. In France, the grand vins of Bordeaux often select the fine oak of the Tronçais wood in the Allier department.
