Wine Expert Note:

The Domaine Georges Vernay Fleurs de Mai Syrah is an exceptional wine that showcases the true essence of the Syrah grape variety. With its deep ruby color, this wine immediately captivates the eye. On the nose, it reveals an enticing bouquet of blackberries, violets, and black pepper, which are characteristic of the Syrah grape. On the palate, the wine offers a harmonious balance between fruitiness and complexity. Ripe blackberry and dark cherry flavors dominate, accompanied by subtle hints of smoked meat and spices. The tannins are well-integrated, providing a smooth and velvety texture. The wine's medium to full body and vibrant acidity contribute to its overall elegance and structure. The Domaine Georges Vernay Fleurs de Mai Syrah is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but it also has great aging potential. It pairs beautifully with grilled meats, game dishes, and hearty stews. Serve it at a slightly cooler temperature to fully appreciate its aromatic complexity. Overall, this Syrah from Domaine Georges Vernay is a true gem, showcasing the winery's commitment to producing exceptional wines that reflect the terroir of the Northern Rhône region. Its depth of flavors, elegant structure, and long-lasting finish make it a wine worth savoring. Read more

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.
