Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Garnet colour with purple highlights. Frank nose, on candied red fruits, notes of sweet spices, opens on notes of prune. Supple attack, full and balanced. Frank and fruity length. Small character on the aromatics.
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.
