Why this event ?

Through this contest of “Sweet February” I try to put the spotlight on this style of wines. Why?

 Because these wines are an integral part of our heritage. Some require a colossal job: manual harvesting, grain by grain, which requires several passages in the vines!

Because these wines have an incredible aromatic palette of diversity: pineapple, candied orange, quince, honey, various varieties of pepper, saffron, and even roasted notes! The list is far from exhaustive!

Because these wines offer surprising and incredibly varied food and wine pairings! You can enjoy them at different times of a meal, and on an impressive number of dishes: cheeses, oysters, asparagus, chickens, shellfish… 

Because these wines keep very well once opened! The same bottle can be used on different occasions and you can enjoy a simple glass without saying that you will have to throw the rest of the bottle the next day. 

Because these wines offer incredible potential!In the idea of acquiring the vintages of your own year of birth or your loved ones, this remains the safest choice in terms of conservation but also in terms of quality/price ratio!

I hope this will make you want to open these bottles (always in moderation). Many other names and styles exist and deserve to be discussed more!
