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.
Domain and appellation
CHÂTEAU DE L'HYVERNIERE
The 15th century château was completely destroyed by fire during the French Revolution, then rebuilt and purchased in 1922 by Auguste Sautejeau, who transformed it into a vast wine-producing estate. In 2007, it became part of the Castel Family of Châteaux and Domaines.
Terroir: This 58-hectare estate, located in the communes of La Chapelle Heulin and Le Pallet, about 30 kilometres from Nantes, is planted on sandy clay, sandstone, schist and mica schist soils.
Vinification: Pressing is carried out at low pressure. The must is then immobilised, cold, for 7 days. This is followed by fermentation at 15°C for 24 days. The wine is then aged in stainless steel and concrete vats on fine lees for 6 months with regular stirring of the lees to give the wine finesse.
