Our oenologists' opinion
Its garnet color offers a fresh nose of black fruits with minty fresh, pepper and sweet spices notes. On the palate, this wine is balanced, full, full-bodied with a good envelope. It is nervous with iodine mineral touch and a long, vibrant finish on tight and velvety tannins.
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 ?
The name of Château Mont-Redon comes from the Latin "Montem Retundum" which means "Mont Rond", referring to a small round hill in the locality.
