Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark tile brick color announces a nose with a nice bouquet of dark fruits and balsamic notes. The palate is balanced, straight, fine and rounded with a nice envelope, aromas of sweet spices and hints of truffle and minerality. Nervous, this wine offers a nice finish on velvety and sappy tannins.
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.
