Our oenologists' opinion
Its garnet color with brick reflections offers a nice nose of blackcurrant syrup, blueberries with a fresh menthol peak. In the mouth this wine has a good balance, full-bodied, with ripe tannins that melt. Final on licorice and pepper.
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 cold pre-fermentation maceration occurs without alcohol. The goal is to slowly extract the aromas from the grape’s pellicle and pulp. In Burgundy, this method aims at strengthening the pinot noir fruity aromas.
