Pavan is crafted with hand-harvested Petite Muscat grapes from the AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) region of Frontignan. Long exposure to the sun and proximity to the sea provide the perfect conditions for the Muscat vines to thrive, producing small berries that are naturally sweet and rich in aromas.
The Muscat juice is then blended with a grape-based spirit, creating a ‘vin de liqueur’. This fortification process prevents the fermentation of the juice, and preserves the original aromas and freshness of the Muscat grape.
This ‘vin de liqueur’ is aged one to two years in oak casks dating back to the 19th century, allowing the blend to mature slowly while retaining the distinctive character of the original fruit.
Finally, the ‘vin de liqueur’ is blended with a touch of orange blossom from the Mediterranean. This infusion gives Pavan its aromatic citrus notes and reinforces its freshness.
Pavan is 18%ABV.
