Winemaking and ageing
A sumptuous gift of nature, collected by men of skill, 'Vendanges Tardives' is only applied to wines of superior quality and coming from the best of grape varieties.  Harvested manually, the grapes are then brought to the cellar whole and overripe (a noble fungus called botrytis has developed causing the grape juice to concentrate and be very sweet.)  Fermentation is slow and done at 13°C.
Wine description
A wine expressing elegant fragrances of candied fruits, honey, spices and roses. Just as aromatic in the mouth, it blends richness, power and freshness, complimented by a nice persistence.
Wine and food pairing
Appetizers, special occasions, Foie gras, pineapple fritters, flambéed bananas, old cheeses, every kind of dessert or just to end dinner nicely.
