The ratafia (18° vol.) is a traditional Champagne aperitif to be discovered without delay.
Blending and ageing: The ratafia champenois is made at the harvest by blending Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier grape musts and alcohol. It is then aged in oak barrels for three years, which gives it its beautiful amber colour and aromas of candied fruit.
Tasting: With a beautiful amber colour, the ratafia reveals aromas of dried grapes, vanilla and candied orange on the nose. The palate is greedy and tart with notes of candied apricot, stewed white fruit and spices.
Food and wine pairing: Traditionally served as an aperitif, ratafia goes perfectly with melon, Serrano ham, foie gras, cheeses and sublimates the fondant of chocolate desserts.
