Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Garnet colour with ruby glints. A frank nose of fresh spices on the garrigue. Opens on woody, vanilla notes. Supple attack, medium body compared to the bulk. Lingers on candied black fruit. Average persistence.

Features

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 ?

Cabardès is the only appellation to combine Atlantic grape varieties (40% mini : merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc) with Mediterranean grape varieties (40% mini : syrah and grenache),
