There is often a subtle earthiness present, adding complexity to the aromatic profile. When it comes to taste, Domaine Faury Côte-Rôtie showcases a harmonious balance between fruit, acidity, and tannins. The black fruit flavors observed on the nose carry through to the palate, accompanied by additional layers of spice, such as black pepper and cloves. The wine's structure is typically medium to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins that provide a smooth and velvety mouthfeel. The finish is long and persistent, leaving a lingering impression of dark fruits and subtle savory notes. It pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes, including roasted meats, game, and rich, flavorful cheeses. Read more

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.
