Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Garnet colour with ruby highlights, nice open nose with pepper, red fruit gratin and juniper, good balance, good freshness, fairly medium body, marked spice and pepper character, boxwood and menthol notes, good, taut, fresh length.
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 ?
There are over 690 cooperative wineries and unions in France. Together, the 84000 winegrowers produce 39% of A.O.C wines (French appellation wines), 71% of Vins de Pays (local wines) and export over a third of their production abroad. Acting as a collective force, those cooperatives allow winegrowers to focus on their vineyards without directly having to take care of the winemaking process and the commercialization of their wines.
Domain and appellation
Prosperous in the Middle Ages, the wines of Poitou came from a vast area between the Loire and the Garonne. Nowadays, the vineyards of Haut-Poitou reprsent only 500 hectares located on some enclaves, north and east of Poitiers.
