Our oenologists' opinion
The intense and complex nose offers aromas of cassis and spices with toasted notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. Generous and amples in the palate, this Thomas Barton Réserve Saint-Julien has an harmonious tannic structure with a lasting and persistent 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.
