Chateau de Laubade Floc de Gascogne Vin de Liqueur (750ml)
This adaptation of a 16th century recipe is a recreation from the dark ages, but seems unusually modern. A blend of fresh grape juice and young Bas Armagnac, this light aperitif is versatile and has mass appeal. A blend of 50% Colombard and 50% Ugni Blanc, production consists of 100% free-run juice which is settled and decanted. Next, once a year, the fresh grape juice and young Armagnacs are blended in a closed vat. This is the Floc and is left to settle until the end of winter. Color: Straw-colored, gold-tinted. Nose: honey, candied fruit, quince and stone fruit. Palate: Intense and invigorating - subtle and appealing grape, peach and citrus flavors with a distinct acidity, sweetness is not overpowering. Perfect substitute for Lillet and should be served similarly chilled. Also works well with chocolate and ice cream desserts.
