Of the four different bottlings of Muscat that we tried, this one was hands down and unanimously the most complex and refined. From 60+ year old vines with tiny berried minuscule yields, only 600 bottles of this nectar were made, aged in two small feuillette barrels. This is about as good as Muscat gets, as far as I’ve experienced, in luscious honeyed intensity without any sense of cloying heaviness or alcoholic imbalance. This would be a great cheese course pairing, or perhaps with some Fiadone, the Corsican style cheesecake that isn’t so dense and sweet. This is the kind of nectar that would put a smile on anybody’s face, as it is just plain yummmmmy.
