This fortified sweet wine - vin doux naturel - is shimmering golden in the glass with an intense, complex nose of grapes, pear, rose petals and citrus. On the palate it is sweet, rich, powerful with a balancing zesty acidity on the long finish.

Winemaking

The owner of the estate, Raymond Miquel, is instrumental in the winemaking process. He subjects the grapes to organoleptic analysis when they are on the vine to ensure the optimum balance of sugars, acidity and phenolic maturity. The fruit is then hand-harvested and sorted. Fermentation is carried out at low temperature (11°C) until ideal residual sweetness is achieved (135g/l), at which point the fermentation is arrested by fortifying with grape spirit.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

This intensely aromatic sweet wine should be served very cold and will pair strongly flavoured foods from foie gras to chocolate cake.
