Our oenologists' opinion
Powerful wine with potential
With its garnet color, this wine offers an open nose on red fruits and spicy notes. On the palate, it presents a suave attack, and greedy on round tannins. Final on the fruit.
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 "Wolf in the Sheepfold" is a creation of Orliac children who wanted to have fun and renew the genre "entry". This wine comes from a long succession of laughter, impatience and pursuit of pleasure.
