Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Ruby colour with garnet reflections. Nice frank and open nose of cherries, blackcurrant coulis, hints of green pepper. Well-balanced, on a medium body, rather fleshy. Lovely character, ripe tannins that melt into each other. Good straightforward finish.



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 ?

The vines at the origin of the Valençay Rouge "La Pierre à Fusil" are planted on clay-siliceous soils that undulate around Valençay. Flint, in abundance, gave place formerly to a flourishing industry of gun-stone.

Domain and appellation
