Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its deep garnet color offers a wooded nose of menthols, wild grapes, and prunelle. The palate is balanced, full, nervous with a finish on 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.
Do you know ?
The wine can age on the lees. It means that the deposits left in the tank after the fermentation remain present during the ageing phase in order to give roundness and aromas to the wine.
