A famous vermouth from the south of France. It is a white wine based vermouth, made with two wines which are matured separately for a year before a secret selection of herbs and spices (including chamomile, nutmeg and bitter orange) are macerated for three weeks, then carefully extracted. Afterwards, the wine is allowed to rest for six more weeks. Also, if you say the name phonetically it makes for a good insult.
Dry, fruity nose with tangy citrus, berry fruits and all kinds of dried herbs. Peppery, dry palate. Very herbal, with pine resin and cedar, a little thyme.
