More about this wine

Why we have it
The question should be: Why haven't we drunk the lot ourselves?
Why choose this
It screams quality in the most refined manner.
What to expect
A stunning sweet wine to accompany foods of all sorts - not as sweet as you might think.
Food matches
Blue cheeses, foie gras or fruit desserts.
This is a wine that will leave you reeling. It is so beautiful that you will find it very hard to share, although only by sharing can others truly understand the sensations that you will be experiencing.

In Depth

Produced in accordance with the requirements of the Charte Grain Noble Confidentiel, the Mitis is pressed from Amigne grapes that have been allowed to wilt on the vine. The bunches are harvested with their prized noble rot in the month of December.

The Germanier cellar reserves are wines of uncommon distinction. Only the best vines, capable of yielding the most noble and concentrated fruit, are selected.

A vinification in barriques lends them all the complexity and ageing potential worthy of wines for the most special occasions, as much a pleasure to give as to receive.

Amigne comes from "Vitis Amoena", or in Latin, "pleasant grape". "Mitis" is the registered trademark, from the Latin adjective for ripe and sweet.

 

Tasting Notes

A full-bodied sweet wine made from late harvest Amigne, with a lovely gold colour and a sublime bouquet of quince, honey, whiffs of orange peel and a touch of vanilla.

On the palate, it is fresh and fruity with a hint of bitter almond and notes of caramel lingering in the finish.
