The nose is fresh with cherry and candied citrus notes. Our Ratafia develops ginger-breads aromas, rose flower jelly and bitter orange marmalade flavours. We can define it on the nose: velvety, warm, full and round nose. In the mouth, aromas of rose jelly and candied fruit are discovered. The palate is greedy, fresh and elegant, with an incredible aromatic length, with hints of fig, pineapple, mocha and blood orange. The finish is concentrated, slightly heady and very aromatic with notes of almond, fig and hazelnut.
This Ratafia is appreciated on a pan-fried liver or a cheese of character such as gorgonzola or langres. We can also recommend it for dessert on a tarte-tatin with a hint of cinnamon or a chocolate mousse.
