Moelleux is the result of the concentration of natural sugars in the grapes during a good, sunny summer and autumn. Fall in love with its complex aromas of peach, quince very ripe and honey. This specific wine can last in bottles for decades, and its color turns amber with time.
Perfect on its own as an aperitif, pair well withfruit desserts, or even cheeses

The aperitif wine
Patience is the word we use when we make Moelleux! It is not produced every year; only when the weather conditions are right, which means good temperature and sunny autumn. Le Moelleux Réserve comes from a manual harvest, with a more selective sorting. We chose grapes for their noble rot (dehydrated grapes) or botrytis in wetter years (fungi causing grape rot and concentration).
