Our oenologists' opinion
Its yellow color with green hues offers a beautiful open and powerful nose of candied yellow fruit and floral notes of faded roses. On the palate, this wine has a good balance, richness and concentration. Finale on notes of roses, glycine and candied yellow peaches.
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.
