Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark purple color offers a pretty nose of stewed fruit, licorice and cocoa. On the palate, this wine is balanced, full-bodied and has a nice character with sweet spices, garrigue and cocoa. Tight and elegant tannins and a good fruity length.
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 Corbières region has a rich historical past. As evidence: the ruins of the Cathar castles, razed by Simon de Montfort’s armies, the remains of fortresses guarding the border from “Spanish Marches”, as well as numerous abbeys including Lagrasse, which was founded under Charlemagne.
