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.

Château Lanessan is a Bordeaux estate located in the Haut Medoc appellation close to its border with Saint Julien. Until 2022, the estate was still owned by the founding family. The blend is usually Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot in support. In some vintages, small amounts of Cabernet Franc or Petit Verdot may be used. The wine is always made in a traditional style and release prices are affordable. This wine makes a great introduction to the Cabernet-based wines of the Medoc and is a reference point to be familiar with.

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.

This Château Léoville Las Cases is an estate located in the Saint-Julien appellation of Bordeaux. The estate was classified as a Deuxieme Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc, one of three properties split from the former Leoville estate to be so honored. It is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes. Key to style is the use of a lower fermentation temperature resulting in a more exotic, aromatic style of wine. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for around 18 months before release. Throughout the 2010s and beyond, this estate has been making wines the equal of any in Bordeaux.
