Château Viranel Gourmandise is complex on the nose which is dominated by red and black fruits - blackcurrant and cherry - plus a touch of prune, sweet spice and some rose petal nuances. On the palate, it is harmonious with flavours that are found on the nose, nicely balanced and with a delicate sweetness.

Perfect as an aperitif or a dessert wine, Château Viranel Gourmandise is a Cartagène, a blend of the must from Alicante-Bouschet grapes and Languedoc eau de vie. It‚Äôs a very distinctive, traditional Languedoc product, with aromas of liqueur cherries and baking spice and well integrated alcohol.

This vin de liqueur is aged for 20 years in oak barrels, using a solera system that was started in 1987. Château Viranel only produces three hectolitres per year, made from a blend of saignée juice and eau-de-vie (of which, two thirds of the alcohol has been aged for two or three years). The fruit of the grapes and the grape brandy are mixed together and then put into old barrels. Each year Château Viranel produces only around 500 bottles, which represents a 20th of the entire solera.
