Our oenologists' opinion
Its garnet color offers a nice open nose of black fruit coulis, notes of redcurrants jam and licorice. On the palate, this wine presents a good balance, fairly round with a nice character on black fruits and sweet spices. Final frank and straight.
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.

Trading houses often remain in the same family. passing from one generation to another.
