Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour with brick reflections, limpid an shiny. Open nose on the bouquet, spices and black coffee. Supple, velvety attack, character on candied pear and black coffee. Roasted, satiny, full-bodied finish with tension. Nice balance.
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.
