Our oenologists' opinion
Powerful wine with potential
Its dark purple color offers a pretty wooded nose with animal notes. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance and has a nice envelope with a finish on silky tannins. It is frank and young.
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 ?
Located between fermentation and bottling, farming is one of the key steps of winemaking. There are two types of breeding. The first is by breeding in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, concrete, or hard resin between 1 and 12 months. This system is ideal for white, rosé, and light reds, that are fruity and ready to eat. The second, the barrel aging, can last from 12-36 months. If the breeding tank does not alter the taste of wine, the barrel has a direct influence on aromas.
