Our oenologists' opinion
With its garnet-red colour and brick reflections, this wine offers an open and expressive nose, with strawberry syrup and cherry candy. On the palate, it presents a round and fruity attack, with a soft and ample finish.
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 ?
If vines can usually produce wine for over 120 years, their production tends to decrease over time. It takes over 3 years for a vine to be able to start producing wine. The vines’ best years oscillate between 10 to 30 years. Passed that time, they are called “old vines.” Their harvest size decreases but the fruits are highly concentrated with a thick skin that will deliver spicy aromas.
Domain and appellation
If the vines produce wine for more than 120 years, their yield becomes lower over time. On average it takes more than 3 years for a vine to start producing grapes. The peak of the vine, in terms of quality and quantity, is between its tenth and thirtieth year. Then we talk about the prestigious "old vines". The harvests are less dense but the fruits are more concentrated with a skin that tends to thicken to let the spicey notes express.
