L’Orpailleur rouge

Description

Intense ruby colour with purple hues. Charming nose with aromas of cooked and slightly jammy berries. Its mouth, faithful to the nose, asserts itself by its flavours of cooked berries with a light touch of orange marmalade. This Quebec red wine, the most popular in SAQ, is delicate and has a careful composition. It ends its journey with a round and fruity finish. One of our finest vintages.

L’Orpailleur rouge
« Since the vineyard opened 30 years ago, 4 weeks have been added to the growing season, allowing for optimal red wine production conditions. The original intense bouquet tones down after a while. Includes aromas of red berries, dried grapes, prunes and damp earth. Fresh taste with supple tannins. »
- Robert Rheault - Le Canada Français
« Very nicely fruity, nervous attack on the palate, supple, with fruit and tobacco notes. Clean and well done. »
