Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its dark ruby color announces a fresh nose with wooded notes and red fruits aromas. The palate is balanced, straight, plain, round. The finish presents ripe and coated 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 ?
French oak vs. american oak barrels: Wines can age in french or american oak barrels. So what’s the difference? American wood gives the wine coconut aromas whereas french wood conveys hints of vanilla.
