Cazes 2012 Mus­cat de Rivesaltes

Living France - - À La Maison -

(£10.99 for 50cl Aitken Wines) Tra­di­tional mus­cat from Rivesaltes – such as this one from Do­main Cazes – is one of France’s least-ap­pre­ci­ated wine styles. It’s sweet and for­ti­fied, so it has 16% al­co­hol and a sim­i­lar sweet­ness level to port, mak­ing it per­fect when sipped slowly as a di­ges­tif. The fruit char­ac­ter is crys­tal clear: sweet grape juice off­set by a slightly bit­ter orange peel note. This is a great ex­am­ple of a unique wine mak­ing the most of mus­cat.
