Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its dark garnet color offers a pretty nose of roasted red fruits and black cherry. On the palate, this wine is balanced, winey, quite robust, virile and nervous with a signed character and a finish on tight and sturdy tannins.

Features

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.

The couple of dancers depicted on the label refers to a German work dating from the seventeenth century, situated in the Museum of Wine in the Art of the Mouton-Rothschild château.
