Dh Lescombes Ratafia NV
Hervé Lescombes settled in Southern New Mexico after many years of successful winemaking in Burgundy, France. He carried on his family legacy by planting a small vineyard influenced by European viticulture. From this vineyard, only the highest quality, hand-selected grapes are destined to become D.H. Lescombes wines. Showcasing an old world approach to winemaking focused on balance and subtlety, D.H. Lescombes wines are committed to French oak maturation and are hand-crafted with traditional techniques to create wines of the finest character and distinction.
We had been waiting for a special occasion to drink this wine. One finally came along. The bottle stated sweet table wine as the description. It would have been nice to have been a little more informed before using it with the main course. This is definitely a dessert wine. It was by far the sweetest wine I have tasted to date. The winemakers notes hit this one on the head. The bottle is beautiful and the wine would go great with a light pastry or stand alone for dessert.
Food Pairings for Dh Lescombes Ratafia
This fortified wine is softer than most fortified wines because we use less brandy in the process, with the primary method of stopping the fermentation being the utilization of cold temperature. This wine is a beautiful straw color, with a modest viscosity. Rich aromas of honeysuckle, green melon and yellow flowers lead to a rich and sweet flavor, filled with touches of honey, spice, flowers and citrus.
