Domaine Piquemal, Rivesaltes Ambré, Vin Doux Naturel, L'Age de Raison, Hors Age
Made from Grenache Blanc grown in clay and chalk soils, this wine is produced like a fine Banyuls or Tawny Port. The fermentation is blocked by adding spirits to raise the alcohol level to 16%. It is then aged for many years in vat and allowed to oxidize very slowly. The result is a fine, long and mellow dessert wine, reddish brown in color that is a perfect match with cheese (especially blue) and cakes.
