Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its light straw color offers a slightly woody nose of hazelnut, yellow fruits and citrus. On the palate, this wine is balanced, pure, close-grained, full, nervous and well signed with a nice envelope and a vibrant mineral touch. A chiseled tense finish. Beautiful tension and suavity.
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.
