Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Taste and temper: this is what this dark and shiny purple-colored wine has to offer. Fragrances of liquorice, moka and black fruits are released. In mouth, its attack is plump and supple. Tannins are pleasurable and smooth. You will appreciate its taste of black fruits and its balance. The length unveils a spicy note and its finish is long and tasteful.
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.

Homo Erectus Tautavelensis, who lived 450,000 years ago, was in fact discovered here in 1971 and his archaeological museum has become one of Europe’s most popular cultural attractions.
