Muscat de Rivesaltes is an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée in Roussillon, for fortified wines using the Muscat grape. These wines are classed Vins Doux Naturels, or naturally sweet wines, and are a speciality in the area. Sandwiched between the French Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, the Roussillon region is very conducive to the production of Muscat, a particular sunny location leading to very ripe fruit.
Coming only from the Muscat à Petits Grains grape, the plot for this wine was particularly blessed to give a wine with bright light yellow colour, floral nose with menthol touches of citrus and exotic fruits. Deliciously rich, it combines freshness and good complexity of ripe fruit. Perfect as an aperitif, with foie gras, fruit salad and pear charlotte.
