Château D’Arlay Macvin du Jura Rouge (375mL)
Pinot Noir, Brandy | Alc: 17% – Sweet
Macvin du Jura, France
A blend of 2/3 fresh Pinot Noir grape must with 1/3 marc-brandy (aged for 4 years in cask), then matured for 1 year in old barrels. Fresh and well-balanced, it makes for an intriguing aperitif or dessert wine.
Pair with fruit tarts.
“The current release of non-vintage Macvin Rouge I tasted was amazing. It reveals huge intensity along with some sweetness and glycerin from its red liqueur. the Macvin Rouge is two-thirds Pinot Noir blended with one-third brandy. These incredible curiosities are surprisingly remarkable wines that are definitely worth tasting, particularly if you have a sense of adventure and curiosity.” 95 Pts – Robert Parker
