Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Its ruby color with garnet reflections offers a crisp nose of blackened jammy fruit, notes of cocoa, licorice and a fresh bay laurel. On the palate, this wine presents a good balance, rather vinous, a character going on fresh spices, the tannins are fairly round and supple.

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 ?

« Le Foudre » is a large wooden bowl that allows a slow oxygenation of the wine and low evaporation.
