Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

With its brick color, this wine offers a nice open nose of black fruit syrup and undergrowth. On the palate, it has a good balance and a nice attack quite ample, finesse and tight tannins and ripe. Finale typed and elegant.

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 ?

In the 18th century, the wines of Villegeorge were particularly known for their quality, to the point where their price reached the price of vintages classed as third row in 1855.
