Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and light

Its purple robe offers a nice floral nose of lilac, black fruit coulis and pepper. On the palate this wine has a good balance, fairly winey on pretty ripe tannins that will melt quickly. Finale frank, fruity and greedy.



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 "Wolf in the Sheepfold" is a creation of Orliac children who wanted to have fun and renew the genre "entry". This wine comes from a long succession of laughter, impatience and pursuit of pleasure.
