Our oenologists' opinion
Garnet colour with purple tints. Heady nose, with spices, tobacco, pepper, opens on red fruits, wild strawberry and redcurrant. Fleshy attack, full of balance. Straightforward lengthening, on spices, fresh tobacco, woody and toasted notes. Full-bodied. Clean finish, good persistence on spices.
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 tannat grape variety is rare and typical of France's South-west wine regions. Particularly renowned for its positive influence on the Madiran, it gives the wine power and strength through dark fruits aromas.
