Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its dark ruby color with brick highlights offers a nose of black fruit and plum with woody and roasted notes. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank and vinous, and has a good envelope.
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 barrels affects greatly the winemaking process. Its species and origin give the wine different aromas and structures. In France, the grands vins of Bordeaux often select the fine oak of the Tronçais wood in the Allier department.
