Vin Doux Naturel Ambré TPMG
Blend of different little plots with clay-limestone soils, surrounding the winery in Rasteau. Vineyard called “Combe de l’Eoune”, elevated at 320m.
The grapes are hand-picked, before sunrise to make the most of cool night-time temperatures, then sorted at the winery. They are fully destemmed. Gentle pressing, cold-settling then the must goes into stainless tanks for fermentation at low temperature, until the expected sugar content is reached (density ~ 1040). Mutage with neutral wine alcohol. This is the same wine as the VDN blanc, but aged in an oxidative way, in oak barrels for five years.
Deep gold wine color. A complex nose of spirits with walnuts, bitter almond and candied orange aromas. The palate is smooth, with juicy apricot, curry and blond tobacco notes. A rich and concentrated wine, reminding of a Rancio.
Eggplant seared with Cajun spices – Anchovies in salt – Pigeon pastille – Persillé des Aravis goat cheese – Roasted pineapple with dark chocolate – Almonds dartois – Spicy orange salad – As a digestive.
