Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
With its garnet color, this wine offers an open nose with hints of bilberries and blackcurrant. On the palate, it has a good balance, quite full-bodied with roundness and character. Beautiful finish on ripe tannins that melt.
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 ?
Much more than a great wine, Gaillac today is an expression of the rich and authentic culture of the Midi Toulousain, representing the lifestyle of the Southwest.
