Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour with brick tints, opaque and glossy. Open nose with notes of candied cherries, leather and black pepper, hints of cocoa and blackcurrant coulis. Supple, satin-smooth, frank attack, tension, fullness. Beautiful expression of fruit. Pretty notes of spices and roasting. Sapid, roasted and persistent finish. Good character on spices and mocha.
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.
