Domaine Cazes 1999 Muscat de Rivesaltes 375 mlIn Fine Spirits
Muscat de Rivesaltes wines are made from Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains and Muscat of Alexandria. The grape two varieties are blended in varying ratios, according to the style desired by the individual producer. Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is used to bring aromas of exotic and citrus fruits, while Muscat of Alexandria brings a deeper bouquet of white flowers and ripe stone fruit. The wines show aromas of peach, lemon and mango, plus occasionally fresher, herbaceous notes such as mint. These all change with aging (which takes place mostly in the bottle to preserve the fresher aromas) and the wines take on aromas of honey and baked stone fruits.
