Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its garnet color with fuchsia reflection offers a nose on vanilla notes, roasted then on the jam of blackberry and blueberry. On the palate, this wine presents a velvety attack and quite fleshy. Finish short and fruity.
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.
