Extraordinary Old Fortified Wines for a Song‏

Extraordinary old fortified

Incredible aged wines from the 1920's, 1930's, 1940's and 1950's for less than $500 

 

The vin doux naturel wines of Southwest France are quite unique. Similar to Port they are fortified with neutral grape spirit to stop fermentation and thus retain some naturally occurring sugar. The alcohol content is typically somewhere between 15% and 20% and the wines drink more like an aged fortified desert wine.

 

Saint Michel Rivesaltes The wines spend some time in oak during which they gain character and complexity and then are transferred to demi-muids, foudres or demijohns for long storage.

 

At 40, 50 years of age they are wines of great majesty, full of fig, raisin, dried flowers, citrus, nuts, and other intriguing aromas and flavours. The alcohol and sugar ensure that wines age for decades.


The amazing thing is their low price. The wines typically sell for between $250 and $500 a bottle - even if they are over 50 years old. That is remarkable for the time and effort put into making and storing them.

 

Unfortunately, we don't have notes for all of the wines but vin doux naturel wines are regarded as almost indestructible! These wines are now in their drinking window.


We have a small selection of these Rare and Interesting wines in stock. If you are intrigued or would simply like to try a very old French wine, here is your opportunity to do so at a great price.

 

These would be incredible bottles to drink at the end of your Christmas lunch or dinner.
