Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Fragrances of black cherry spiced by notes of pepper and cocoa are released by this dark garnet-colored wine. Fruity, the attack unveils all the suppleness and the temper of this wine. Its winey taste and its great freshness appear at the same time. Tasteful, the finish features discreet and pleasant tannins.



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.
