Our oenologists' opinion
Its bright garnet color offers a nice open nose of dark fruit with a finely wooded point, licorice, sweet spices, violets and iris faded with menthol notes. On the mouth, this wine is balanced, fine, full, nervous and has a good tension and character with a nice salty mineral touch. Its finish is highlighted by round 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.

Built in the 19th century, the exuberant architecture of this château was to hide its cellars.
