Sweet whites


The appellation area enjoys warmdry autumns, advantageous to the sweet wines as this promotes slow concentration of the grapes on the vines. The grapes dry on the vines, giving them a high sugar content and helping retain their acidity, acting as a support for freshness. This process of natural concentration of the grapes by the wind (the Foehn effect) and the sun is known as “raisining” (dehydration of the grape which “overripens” on the vine, harvested by hand in the autumn). The harvests are carried out with a succession of selections, which take place from the end of October until the end of December.


Sweet Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh is an intense and complex wine. It is characterised by candied fruit aromas like apricot, dried fruit, like hazelnut or walnut, and honey. It is a harmonious wine, always well-balanced thanks to its natural freshness. It should be served at  for an aperitif, with foie gras, blue cheese, walnut or chestnut dessertsapricot or quince tarts. For a more original idea it can be enjoyed with duck in peaches or lamb tagine with lemon…
