Paul Dethune Ratafia NV

12% abv

Ratafia de Champagne is made from the standard Champagne grapes, using must from later press runs once the juice for Champagne has been extracted. It is then fortified with a grape brandy distilled from the same type of juice. The resulting drink is similar in style to Pineau des Charentes and is effectively a grape version of the apple-based Pommeau found in Normandy and Brittany.

The nose show candied strawberry, orange blossom. plum liqueur, prunes, leather, figs and honey. After a few minutes, it evolves into more autumnal notes, grilled and spiced (with cumin and gingerbread), candied and macerated almonds, salted butter caramel, liquorice, apricots, cherries, greengages and tarte tatin.
