Lagremas d'Aur means 'Tears of Gold' in Occitan, the ancient language of Languedoc. This is the sweetie from Rives-Blanques - the truly deliciously delectable "curiosity" of our range. Made from chenin blanc harvested in October 2006, and mauzac harvested in November 2006, the grapes were picked at exactly the point where their naturally concentrated sugars were perfectly balanced by natural freshness.
Because the Limoux appellation does not allow for naturally sweet wines made from these grape varieties, “Lagremas d'Aur" has to be labelled as a “Vin de France”, the lowest category in the pecking order of French wines. It was fermented and aged for three years in seasoned French oak barrels, and then aged another year in the bottle.
Grapes: Late Harvest Chein Blanc
Pairings: Delicious with cheese, fruit pies, foie gras and elaborate lobster and duck dishes ... or just on its own.
