Fruity and well-rounded

Discover the nice finesse and the balance of this garnet-colored Morgon releasing mineral fragrances allied to a spiced note recalling liquorice and pepper. In mouth, its tannic structure, pleasant and ripe, is mixing with its winey taste and a nice envelope. It is followed by a frank and straight length, typical, unseen before and agreeably astounding.

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.
