Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its pale color with green hues offers a nice nose very typical of green asparagus, blackcurrant bud and floral notes. On the palate, this wine presents a good balance, dry and nervous with a great character. Final savoury.
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.
Do you know ?
In the field, phytosanitary control is based on observation of the vineyard and biological contact products (copper and sulfur) will be promoted to control downy mildew and powdery mildew.
