This exceptional wine, aged for 30 years in ancient oak foudres, is dedicated to Aimé Cazes, André and Bernard’s father, who showed them the secret to making fine Vins Doux Naturels. The copper-colored wine’s rancio character is already apparent on the first nose. This is followed by a raft of aromas (green walnuts, bitter orange, dried apricot) over a bed of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom) in a fat, soft atmosphere. This wine will be best appreciated, served at 16°C, with duck à l’orange or spicy desserts. It can also be savored on its own, ideally accompanied by a strong cigar. Maison Cazes has the entire collection of vintages (1963, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1978, 1980) of this remarkable wine, first produced in 1963.
