Muscat du Cap Corse wine
Muscat du Cap Corse, a wine from Corsica France Vineyards

This sweet dessert wine from the Cap Corse region is produced in the vin doux naturel style and is composed entirely of Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains. Once, winegrowers used to let the grapes dry on large flat stones (the lauzes) or on stray, to increase the percentage of sugar.
The colour of this dessert wine is yellow, with amber gleams ; the smell is one of candied fruit and muscat raisin ; on the tongue, the wine is round and subtle, without excessive sugar.
This wine fits with foie gras, and any sweet dessert.
