Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

This garnet-colored wine will offer you fragrances of black cherry mixed with a wooded note. In mouth, it is well-balanced and frank. All about finesse, the finish is long and the tannins noble and smooth.

Features

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 ?

The tub and the wine cellar of the Croix Canon are established in an old chapel of the 12th century. It is a precious vestige of the intense religious activity of the Saint-Emilion in the Middle Age.
