Domaine L’Ermitage ‘Le Muscat’ Dessert 50cl
Elegant sweet wine with an excellent balance of sweetness and freshening acidity. Aromas of ripe peach with some hints of lemon verbena, peppermint and lavender honey. It is deliciously grapey and luscious with good length and grapefruity finish.
Grapes are from low yield vines. The vineyard is made up of rolled Durance pebbles – the Durance river flowed through the valley well before the Rhône. Manual harvest when the grapes are super-ripe to obtain the concentration of a “vendanges tardives”. The pressing and the racking of the must are done at low temperatures. The fermentation is carried out at controlled temperatures and halted at 80 grams of residual sugar by the addition of fortifying spirit.
