Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its straw color with green highlights offers a pretty finely wooded nose of hazelnut, vanilla and dried apricot. On the palate, this wine is balanced, full-bodied and strong with character and a tight finish on a mineral touch.

Straw with green tints

Features

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.
