Powerful wine with potential
What a great wine is this Château Laniote! Because of the fragrances it releases, mix of red fruits coulis and liquorice, spiced by an animal note, bringing strength and temper to this pleasant nose. Then, thanks to its nice balance in mouth. Enveloping, its winey side is mixing, in the best way, to its fruity taste and a toasted note.
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 ?
Located between fermentation and bottling, farming is one of the key steps of winemaking. There are two types of breeding. The first is by breeding in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, concrete, or hard resin between 1 and 12 months. This system is ideal for white, rosé, and light reds, that are fruity and ready to eat. The second, the barrel aging, can last from 12-36 months. If the breeding tank does not alter the taste of wine, the barrel has a direct influence on aromas.
