Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Its garnet color offers a fruity nose of cherries, blueberries and fresh menthol notes. On the palate, this wine presents a nice balance, frank, straight, with a nice character on red fruits and ripe tannins. Final frank and straight.

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.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

Truncated-cone tanks are sometimes favored for the fermentation. Those tanks have a conical shape that allows a greater thermal inertia for a slower fermentation.
