Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour with some brick tints. Nose to open, candied black fruits, notes of pepper, old leather, then good balance, vinous, full-bodied, character on leather, roasting, notes of burnt caramel, tannins without fatness. Wine to be decanted before tasting!
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.
