St. Raphael Aperitif Rouge (750ml)

SKU #1265767

St Raphel is the result of a blend of fine wines and carefully selected aromatic plants which conjure up exotic faraway places: quinine, cocoa, bitter oranges, vanilla, calumba, etc. The basic component of St. Raphel goes by the mysterious name of "mistelle". Mistelle is obtained by stopping the fermentation of the grape juice by adding alcohol to keep the natural sugar of the original grapes. Quinine and bitter orange peels, as well as vanilla and cocoa, are then left to macerate slowly in the alcohol until all their aromas have been fully absorbed. During the blending operation, it is the Cellar Master (respecting a hundred years-old tradition) who gives ST RAPHAËL its perfect balance. This is followed by the final stages of cooling, filtering and bottling.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
