Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Its garnet color with ruby highlights offers a nose with hints of cherry coulis and a roasted tip. On the palate, this wine is fairly balanced with a heady tip and a hint of sweetness on fairly vegetal tannins. Final short and dry.

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 ?

    • Viticulture: Manual harvesting is done in early February when temperatures reach 24/25 ° C.
