This is something quite special and very unique. Ratafia is a sweet, slightly oxidized and fortified wine that you'll find in the refrigerator of most winemakers in Burgundy, France. After a hard days work fighting through the tannins of the young wines they're making, an ice cold glass of Ratafia sooths the mouth and rewards the soul.
Jean Pierre harvested very ripe Chardonnay in 2002. Halfway through the fermentation, he added Plum eau-de-vie. Yeast can't exist in an environment with more than about 15% alcohol, so when the eau-de-vie pumps the volume up to 18% the yeast is killed. They never get a chance to finish the natural sugars in the juice, leaving the delicacy to us.
The result is a strongly flavoured dessert wine with lovely aromas of apricot and caramel.
This one smells just like an apricot tart that has just come out of the oven. Drink this wine as cold as ice in small glasses - it's fantastic over ice cream.
