Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its pale orange dress offers a nice fresh nose of yellow fruit, apricot and fresh almonds. As for the taste, this wine has a nice balance. It is vinous, full-bodied and with a marine point. Its finish is stretched and clamped on a mineral edge.
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 Bandol are particularly marked by Mourvèdre that flourished in this warm region and climate that gives the wine a powerful and tannic character.
