Cartagene Dessert Wine NSA André Bourguet

Campagne St. Georges has had Father-Son winemakers for more than 5 generations. Since 1987, the vineyards have been cultivated organically, in accordance with the standards adopted by the EEC.

The farming methods are meant to be the reflection of true nature. The vines grow along the rocky hillsides, where the fauna and flora develop with exuberance, where every living thing finds a little piece of land in which to thrive. It is in this Languedoc countryside that Lucien Bourguet created his warm, hearty wines. Following in his father’s footsteps, André Bourguet carries the family torch of respect for the tradition of wine making without chemical processing nor added sulfites.

Cartagène, a traditional aperitif of the Languedoc, was formerly created by winemakers for their personal consumption. The grapes are harvested at high maturity (14 to 15.5 Brix) to get the maximum amount of sugar. They are then laid to macerate in oak barrels for a full year, with the winery’s own 'eau de vie'. After that long maceration, the juice is run, grapes are crushed, and the final wine is carefully assembled and bottled without any fining or filtering. At no time is SO2 used. The wine’s own alcohol and sugar content preserve the quality and freshness of the wine.

Cartagène is an excellent aperitif with a very fresh taste. A year of oak aging imparts a huge, deep aroma. Very fresh, sweet, complex palate with power and vigor. Stunning, endless aftertaste marked by intense varietal character. 

This is dessert, to drink by itself, but is even more divine with blue cheese or something chocolate. How about Dr. Weil's Vegan Chocolate Pudding recipie?

From of Los Alamos, New Mexico on .

I don't know why I stayed away from the dessert wines so long. A sip here and a sip there, the bottle seems to last forever. But our bottle is getting empty, and I've got to order another right away!

Caveat: my stars are very well uninformed.
