Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Les Pélerins de Lafon-Rochet is the second wine of Château Lafon-Rochet, a property that was awarded Fourth Growth status in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc, located in the Saint Estephe appellation of Bordeaux, France. The grapes come from younger vines on the estate and from vineyards located further inland, away from the river. The winemaking is focused on careful blending to achieve a style that while still worthy of cellaring is more approachable in youth with a less foreboding structure. The wine shows impressive complexity having been aged for a minimum of 12 months in French oak barrels, a moderate proportion of which were new. The provenance of the fruit and the technical winemaking result in highly enjoyable wine that is a reference point for the region and a charming glass of wine in its own right.

First owned by an Irish merchant, Château Boyd-Cantenac Margaux was classified as a Troisieme Cru Classe in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc. Located in the appellation of Margaux, its vineyards are over 40 years old on average and planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Whilst the viticulture is traditional and done by hand, the winemaking is more modern, sometimes involving micro-oxidation to promote an elegant texture. The wines are well integrated having spent roughly 18 months in a high proportion of new French oak. The resulting wine is known for its elegance, complexity, and balance, with notes of blackcurrant, cedar, and spice. Château Boyd-Cantenac Margaux is suited to any wine enthusiast looking for a classic Bordeaux experience.

Château Pichon Baron Pauillac (Grand Cru Classé) is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This wine is produced from the best grapes grown on the estate of this historic property which was classified as a 2nd Growth in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc. The vines produce low yields which are then optically sorted to ensure that only the most uniform and ripest fruit enters the Grand Vin. Fermentation occurs in a mixture of vessels before long aging in a high proportion of new French oak barrels. The result is an exquisite, complex, and opulent wine, with aromas of ripe blackcurrant fruit, tobacco, cedar, and graphite. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a high level of firm tannins cut by refreshing acidity. The finish is long and evolving and full of sweet oak spice notes. This wine is the very definition of Pauillac and the wines of the Medoc.
