Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its salmon color introduces a nose of wild berries, huckleberries and menthol. The palate is balanced, plain, nervous and characterized with a nice envelope. The finish is crisp. Nice freshness.
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 the rosé is produced today in many different regions of France and across the world, the mediterranean region remains its historic birthplace. Provence is actually the region of France that produces the most rosé.
