Our oenologists' opinion
You will have an enjoyable moment discovering the fragrances getting out of this bottle. Indeed, they will recall you candied fruits, juniper, cilantro and even cocoa. In mouth, it is well-balanced. Tannins are melted enough and supple.
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.
