Complex and aromatic amber sweet wine

Chez Jau is what is known as a Vins deux Naturels, a naturally fortified wine using a similar method to Port. That is, adding a neutral grape spirit to stop the fermentation early, keeping sugar and alcohol simultaneously. VdN from Rivesaltes (the largest appellation for this style of sweet wine) are made with exposure to oxygen. This wine, for two years in a similar way to sherry or madeira. After, it is put in oak 

 

The resulting wine is exceedingly fresh amongst its natural sweetness. An easy going and very palatable wine with caramalised fruit, christmas cake, cloves orange peel and gingerbread notes showing through. A perfect pairing for many naturally sweet deserts and soft cheeses.
