Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its green gold color offers a fresh nose of candied yellow fruit and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full, sweet, nervous and spicy with a crispy finish.
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.
Style ? Dry wines are acidic, lively and fresh while sweet wines are soft and feel round in the mouth.
Do you know ?
Used in the preparation of sweet and mellow wines, the fungus Botrytis cinerea covers the grapes of a "noble rot" to concentrate their sugars and aromas.
