Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its garnet color with dark brick reflections offers a nose open with notes of sweet pepper, blackcurrant coulis and toasted notes. On the palate, this wine has a good balance, full-bodied, vinous, with finesse and a nice character, the tannins are quite wrapped and will soon blend. Finish on fresh notes of sweet pepper and mint.
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.
