Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
This brick wine unveils first fragrances recalling spices. Then, the nose opens and evokes stewed fruits, cocoa and pepper. The supple attack precedes a mouth with notes of mocha and pepper before a length that has a taste of liquorice and candied black fruits. The whole forms a good balance followed by a frank and tasteful finish.
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.

Built in the 19th century, the exuberant architecture of this château was to hide its cellars.
