Our oenologists' opinion
Old leather, nutmeg and strawberry coulis are the fragrances you will discover once you open the bottle of this dark garnet-colored wine. You will also find out that its attack is soft but also plump. In mouth, notes of cocoa are mixing with the tannins that are smooth. The finish is characterized by its power but also by a real finesse.
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.
