The Macvin is a blend of Chardonnay and Poulsard. The fermentation is stopped by the addition of marc (grape brandy). The blend is two-thirds grape must and one-third marc. The Macvin spends three years in barrel before it is bottled; it carries 18% alcohol. This Macvin is a lovely aperitif or accompaniment to the fine cheeses of the region.

Tasting Notes: "The delicious result is strong and sweet with complex flavors of burnt orange peel, nuts, dried fruits and southern sweet tea. A high alcohol content (17%) and some sweetness means a re-corked bottle will keep for months in your refrigerator, but in spite of these qualities the Montbourgeau Macvin retains a bright, fresh quality that makes it equally appropriate before or after dinner. Ideally we recommend pairing it with a hunk of your favorite Marcel Petite Comté. Try it also with fruit or nut desserts, or even dark chocolate." - Formaggio Kitchen
