The name Ratafia refers to an ancient method of preserving fruit that dates back to the 1300s, usually a liqueur or a fortified wine flavored with peach, apricot, or cherry pits, or bitter almonds. In the case of the Giraud Solera Ratafia de Champagne, it’s an golden-glinted blend of 30% Chardonnay and 70% Pinot from the Aÿ that has been fortified with brandy. In addition, it’s a Solera-style, and so, is the product of many vintages assembled together.

The resulting wine exhibits layered, multifarious aromas of hazelnuts, orange marmalade, steeped black cherries, coco powder and even a subtle, provocative top note of rancio. Silky smooth, with the weight of a tawny, and only moderately sweet.
