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.

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.

Frank Follin-Arbelet grew up in the heart of Burgundy, working in the vineyards as a child on school holidays. Unfortunately, the vines of his family were all rented out to other producers and his winemaking ambitions had to wait until he joined the domaine of his father-in-law. Franck makes traditional Pinot Noir with all the fruit being destemmed and prefers to use a lower proportion of oak so as to not overwhelm the fruit. This balanced approach results in wines that age gracefully.
