Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
The blackcurrant and licorice nose announces a balanced palate. The wine is bold, round and ample with a lingering finish and coated tannins.
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 ?
If the gamay is produced everywhere in France and across the world, it remains Beaujolais’ flagship grape variety. Too often associated to the Beaujolais Nouveau Primeur Wine, its real potential is too often underestimated.
Domain and appellation
Sourced out from diverse South-West vineyards, this gamay carried the Pays du Comté Tolosan appellation.
- Vinification: Those wines result from the collaboration between the maison Nicolas and local wine cellars, which are selected for their abilities to enhance their surrounding terroirs. Nicolas’ oenologists assess each year the quality of the new batches and decide of the wines’ blends and dosages. The wines are blended and bottled in Castel wine centers which are driven by innovation and savoir-faire with a high focus on quality and sustainable development. International certifications such as ISO, IFS, BRC or ECOCERT come reward several centers’ best practices.
