Our oenologists' opinion
Its garnet color with brick red reflections offers a nose with bouquet of pure and elegant roasted black fruit, licorice, menthol and minerals. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance, finesse and roundness. It is clean, elegant, full and nervous with a nice finish on silky and round tannins. Beautiful wine.
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 ?
Saint-Emilion’s glorification is historic. Cherished by Cesar and the British kings, Louis XIV placed it on a pedestal when calling it the “drink of the gods.”
