Fine and authentic, the Christian Naudé Ratafia Selection is a typical champagne aperitif wine.
This ratafia is blended by Christian Naudé champagne from the musts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Made in the respect of the Champagne tradition, this ratafia is produced from unfermented grapes to which is added a Champagne eau-de-vie, the marc.
The eau-de-vie marc is produced from the distillation of the champagne marc, the last grapes remaining after being pressed, before ageing for 2 to 5 years in oak barrels.
Traditionally, ratafia is the wine reserved for the personal consumption of the winegrower and made to be served during the harvest. Today there are only a few winegrowers still qualified to distil this traditional Champagne alcohol.
A real aperitif wine, the Christian Naudé Ratafia Selection will also accompany your desserts with elegance.
Aspect: aromas of prune, gingerbread and caramel
Nose: amber, shiny, tiled with topaz reflections
