2007 Chez Jau, Rivesaltes Ambré, Vin Doux Naturel, Roussillon, France
6 in stock
Roving Sommelier is passionate about the Vin Doux Naturel dessert wines of Roussillon, South-West France. The small, family-owned vineyard is located on black schist soils in Rivesaltes, near to Perpignan in Roussillon. The wine is made up of 100% Grenache Blanc. All the grapes have been hand-harvested and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve and enhance the wine’s primary fruit flavours. In addition, the wine has been aged for ten years in small old oak barrels to develop texture and complexity and a richer flavour and amber colour. This Vin Doux Naturel has been lightly fortified to 17% abv and reveals exquisite fruit flavours of citrus peel, candied orange and honey and beeswax aromas. Perfect with fruit flavoured desserts, especially those with apricots, peaches and nectarines or crème brulée and chocolate.
