Choosing a good wine to offer is not an easy task, sometimes you have to trust your instincts and refer to your own memories. Grape varieties , appellations and terroirs are all three clues to play the game of smells with wine.

Knowing the vineyard and the surroundings of the winery allows you to know what aromas you can find in the wine.
Floral , fruity and vegetal notes are very present in young wines, and wines aged in stainless steel or concrete vats to preserve the freshness of the aromas . When they are aged in oak barrels, the wines develop woody , candied fruit and smoked aromas , an aromatic bouquet filled with gluttony and pleasure.
The aromas give a real identity to the wine, just like its color and the sensation it gives in the mouth . Light , round , supple , tannic , so many personality traits for a wine to satisfy your desires and your preferences .
