Muscat de Noel 2014 is here!
Released on the 3rd Thursday of November, this Christmas Muscat is the first bottled Vin Doux Naturel of the new vintage.
A blend of two varietals – Muscat d’Alexandrie and Muscat à Petits grains – the rigorous process of mutage allows the wine to keep part of its natural fruit sweetness.
Since 1997, Muscat de Rivesaltes has been allowed to use the Muscat de Noel designation.
Muscat de Noel 2014 in figures: 500,000 bottles (fewer than 42,000 cases) produced and marketed by approximately one hundred winegrowers in the départements of Pyrénées-Orientales and Aude.
With its delicate aromas of citrus and exotic fruits, it is the perfect wine for the holiday season.
