Our oenologists' opinion
Amber garnet colour with brick reflections, limpid and brilliant. Open nose with notes of smoke, spices, dark chocolate and leather, with a hint of cigar. Velvety, racy attack, enveloping tannins, character on spicy and undergrowth notes, hints of leather and roasted plum. Well-balanced finish, sapid, good balance, good persistence on spices and cocoa.
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.
