Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its straw color offers a nice nose of white flowers and white fruits. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance, full-bodied, vinous, dry and nervous on iodized and mineral notes. Frank and powerful finish.

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.

Do you know ?

In 1936, the vineyard of Cassis goes into history. It obtains its classification in Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, AOC, at the very moment when these three letters officially see the light. Cassis is thus the first vineyard in France to have received this distinction.
