Our oenologists' opinion
Its light straw color with green highlights present a nice open nose of wooded and brioche notes with yellow fruits and dry almonds aromas. The palate is balanced, accurate, fine, fairly full-bodied, ample, nervous and signed with a mellow finish.
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.
Do you know ?
The term “climate” is utilized in Burgundy to designate all the localities that benefit from unique geological and weather conditions.
