Dolin Vermouth Rouge (Red) 16% 750ml
Brilliant amber colour with glints of copper. Very pleasant nose of fruit compote, prune and walnut with a slightly grassy note tempered by the spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla and Szechwan pepper. On the palate, complex aromas of almond and fruit, citrus, pear and cinnamon, with notes of spice cake and tobacco, then violet, oregano and hyssop. A subtle base of bitterness underlies this rich bouquet.
Dolin is among the few remaining independent producers of Vermouth and the last producing Vermouth de Chambéry, still made according to the principles which earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d’Origine Controllée. Their bitters are the result of an infusion of herbs, aromatic plants and fruit in neutral alcohol and wine. Made to the same base of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine Vermouth. Inventors of the Blanc (White Vermouth), Dolin is equally famous for its very light, pale Dry. In the late 19th century, Dolin won medals in Paris, London, St. Louis and Philadelphia and in 1932 earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d' Origine for Vermouth. Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry is made of fine wines and botanicals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry (France). Together they impart a fresh and elegant nose, with a subtle and complex palate. Ideal as an aperitif or in cocktails.
