Vin Doux Naturel

Vin Doux Naturel "Vendanges Oubliées" 2012

Vin de Pays du Gard

This naturally sweet wine is excellent as an aperitif or a dessert. Great with foie gras, blue cheese,  bitter chocolate desserts, fruit desserts, and also with sweet and sour dishes.

Hand harvested in the middle of November from very ripe grapes. Direct pressed by hand.

Cold settling after 24hrs before alcoholic fermentation at 15°C. Aged in stainless steel vats for a year.

Bottling takes place at the winery to oversee the quality and processing of our wines from the grapevine to the bottle. 

A wine quite amazing, with a nose recalls the sweet wines of the Loire, but the mouth is 100% South : exotic fruits, honey, a rich and greedy wine." Bettane & Desseauve 2012
