Another instant classic from Alice, a talented producer that in the vineyard and cellar follows her instinct rather than relying on recipes of any kind. This gentle maceration of Muscat from grapes harvested in the Pyrénées offers great freshness, with lots of citrus zest to complement the riot of flowers on display. We can think of few better ways to begin a meal than this remarkable apéritif.
