Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Notes of spices and candied black fruits are released by this dark garnet-colored wine that amazes in mouth with its great suppleness and its amazing personality. Indeed, after a supple attack appear a plump mouth and the same aromas perceptible at nose. These aromas expresses themselves with persistency before a frank finish.

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 ?

The name of Château Mont-Redon comes from the Latin "Montem Retundum" which means "Mont Rond", referring to a small round hill in the locality.
