Our oenologists' opinion
Its light straw color offers a nice bouquet nose that opens to fine woody notes, sweet almond and vanilla. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance and finesse. It is clean, fairly full-bodied and typed with a mineral edge and a tense and vibrant finish. Lovely wine.
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.
