Our oenologists' opinion
Its light straw yellow color offers an open nose on fairly vegetable notes. On the palate, this wine presents an acidulous attack, on notes of white peach and pear. Crunchy 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 ?
This Côtes du Rhône takes its name from the 45th North parallel which passes two kilometers of cellars of Maison Paul Jaboulet Elder.
