SKERZO - APERITIF

20.00

17,5° – 75 cl

Mélange de jus de raisin frais colombard et d'armagnac, élevé 3 ans en barrique, c'est un apéritif ou un vin du désert à servir froid ou sur glace.

Scherzo signifie une blague en italien et fait souvent référence à une composition musicale humoristique en évolution rapide.

Cette étiquette est le résultat de notre réflexion familiale (comme de l’ensemble de nos produits) et a été conçue par ma cousine. Cette boisson courante dans le sud-ouest de la France est à peine connue ailleurs, elle est considérée comme "moins grave" que l'armagnac. Comme une blague, il s’est avéré être un excellent partisan et est devenu très sérieux. La vérité est que ma femme vous dira que Skerzo a été la petite poussée qui lui a fait dire le grand «oui» il y a 10 ans! Certains d’entre vous voient peut-être le Skerzo comme un véritable sauveur !

Blend of fresh colombard grape juice and armagnac, aged 3 years in barrel, it is an aperitif or desert wine to be serve cold, or on ice. 

Scherzo means a joke in Italian, and also frequently refers to a fast-moving humorous musical composition .

This label is the result of our familly reflection (like all of our product), and was designed by my cousin. This common drink in the south west of France is barely known elsewhere, it is something considered “less serious” than the armagnac. Like a joke it has proved to be a great party enhancer and soon become really serious. Truth is my wife will tell you that Skerzo was the little push that made her say the big “Yes” some 10 year ago! Now some of you may see the Skerzo as a real helper !

Appearance, snif and taste:

Mix of blends of Bas Armagnac and grape musts. The Armagnac varieties are the Baco 22A and Folle Blanche, having spent at least three years casked in oak. The musts of Colombard were chosen for their floral finesse and freshness. Fortification takes place exclusively from the drops, racked in the cold by gravity, in oak barrels with neutral tanins. Daily mixing for the first ten days is required. The Armagnac is poured over the must and not the other way around, in order to favor the mutation: The armagnac kills the bacteries hence preventing the grape juice to become wine, and keeping the residual sugar from the grapes. Skerzo is often compared to a sort of desert wine or sauterne, yet it tastes different.

How to enjoy:

Always chilled (refrigerator); As an aperitif, or served with foie gras, Roquefort or other strong cheese or desert.
