Rives-Blanques Lagremas d’Aur 2006 (#35-13) Dessert Wine
$27.00

Lagremas d'Aur means 'Tears of Gold' in Occitan, the ancient language of Languedoc.  This is s sweetie from Rives-Blanques, a truly delicious, delectable "curiosity" of their 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.
