Our oenologists' opinion
Straw-yellow colour with green glints. Beautiful open, typical and powerful nose of white flowers, passion fruit, blackcurrant buds followed by mineral notes of oyster shells, hints of citrus zest, hints of vanilla. Well-balanced, full-bodied, straightforward. Beautiful finesse on mineral notes, dry and nervous. Beautiful length with a hint of vanilla woodland which is still young but promising.
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.
