The Art of Wine Tasting
The wine tasting starts with a visual examination of the “robe” of the wine. In different cases, it shows the color and the clarity. The “robe” can also tell the maturity of the wine. When it’s young, the white wine has a pale yellow color with green reflects. With aging, it will turn to orange yellow. However, for the red wine, it’s the opposite: when it’s young, the color is dark, with purple reflects, even bluish. With aging, it grows pale: the ripe cherry color becomes orange red, then mahogany for the wines to be kept.
Deep cherry-colored robe. Fruity with some strawberry and notes. Raspberry powerful start but well-balanced. Good tannic persistence in the mouth. A perfect combination between fruity notes, balance and delicacy. Serve between 16°c et 18°c.
Beautiful glaring ruby robe. Generous bouquet with red fruit aromas, black currant and delicate woody notes. Thanks to the dominant grape variety merlot, which brings the roundness and the supple tannins it can be tasted when it’s young. Meanwhile, the wine has a complex structure, brought by the cabernet sauvignon, in order that the wine can be well- aged.
