Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour with brick tints, limpid and brilliant. Open nose with hints of caramel, cocoa and raspberry gratin, hints of laurel and fur. Velvety attack, supple, well-balanced, full-bodied and tense. Rather satiny tannins, character on red berries. Sapid, spicy finish with a hint of candied pepper. Beautiful spicy finish, tension and good persistence.
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.
