Our oenologists' opinion
Black garnet color with brick reflections, dark, dense, opaque and shiny. Reduced nose to open, then notes of garrigue, liquorice, roasted coffee and blackberry coulis, spicy, full-bodied. On the palate, a rich, warm attack, tension, full-bodied, on silky and fatty tannins, character on the roasting. Racy, full-bodied, ample finish, fairly good balance.
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.
