Domaine Trilles Rivesaltes Ambré 16%
Deep dark colour, something between brown and gold. Rich complex nose with hints of honey, caramel, candied fruits and vanilla. Amazingly rich and full on the pallet, with notes of candied fruit, walnut, hazelnut and vanilla. Long, lingering flavours.
A remarkably intense complex wine. A "Vin Doux Natural" made, like port, by adding spirit to arrest the fermentation. Made from Grenache. Matured in barrels for 3 years before bottling. A wonderful example of a style of wine that unfortunately has gone out of fashion. Will keep for decades.
Great with rich puddings, nuts, cake and strong cheeses, or just savoured on its own.
