Enjoy it as an aperitif, post-prandial treat, or with fruit-based desserts.
Muscat de Rivesaltes is an appellation for vins doux naturels (sweet, fortified wines) in France's Roussillon region. It is the largest single sweet-wine appellation in France (along with Rivesaltes, which covers the same area).
The wines are made from Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains and Muscat d'Alexandrie, in varying proportions, by a technique known as mutage, a process of arresting fermentation by the addition of grape spirit while unfermented grape sugars remain. The result is a sweet wine with relatively high alcohol: a delicious digestive.
