Dolin, Vermouth de Chambéry AOC, Rouge, Savoie, France NV
VERY AROMATIC, SMOOTH, PUNGENT HERB, OFF-DRY
Using their same base recipe since 1821, Dolin is the Vermouth producer of choice. Located in Chambéry, high in the French Alps, this estate still uses real plants and herbs rather than extracts to infuse the base wine for Vermouth. Their red style is lighter and generally a touch sweet, and the color comes from the caramelized sugars and plants, not red wine or coloring agents as in commercially produced Vermouths.
Serving Suggestion: This will make a majestic Manhattan, a righteous Rob Roy & a nifty Negroni.
