Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Dark garnet colour with brick tints, limpid and shiny. Open nose, with notes of black pepper and fire, tart, fresh and fine. Supple and vinous attack, beautiful finesse, tension, full, character on the terroir. More discreet oak, velvety tannins. Crisp and complex acidulous 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.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Cave de Tain
Founded in 1933 by Louis Gambert de Loche, the Cave de Tain benefits from the expertise of 300 wine-growers. They produce wines designated as Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, Saint Joseph, Cornas and Saint Péray on more than 1 000 hectares. They also produce local wines. Terroir: Granitic arenas, on terraces Vinification: Hand-picking of grapes at full maturity. Traditional maceration in concrete vats at 28-30°C with gentle extraction methods: regular pumping over with the use of a marc sprinkler and delestage at the beginning of maceration. The vats are kept at 30°C after alcoholic fermentation for several days. Regular tasting to decide on the date for hot run-off to carry out the malolactic fermentation in wood. Ageing: 17 months in new 400L barrels of 1 and 2 wines.
