Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Garnet colour. Straightforward nose of plum and black fruits. Opens with notes of liquorice, cumin and thyme. Supple attack of fullness and balance. Straightforward lengthening on woody and sweet spicy notes. Medium-bodied, straightforward and long on tobacco notes. Medium-long-lasting but straightforward.

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.
