The Carthagène (cartagena in occitan) is a fortified wine typical from Languedoc.
Traditionnally it is drunk as an aperitif or with desert.
Domaine Virgile Joly is proud of this ancestral tradition and wishes to introduce this
unique product. This Carthagene has a magnificent rose color enhanced with orange gleam.
The nose is very intense with rose petals, oranges zests, lychee and spices.
The taste of this Carthagene is round balanced with a long persisting finish finally ending
with bergamot and a subtile coffee note.
This vin de liqueur is unique and very representative of Virgile’s style.

Food & wine pairing: it will pair perfectly with an orange dessert, a red fruit dessert, chocolate cake or spice bread. It can also be drunk on its own as an apéritif.

Commentary written in January 2004 by sommelier Fabrice LANGLOIS

This rose coloured wine with orangey highlights is brilliant and perfectly limpid. The aroma is intense of bitter orange, spices and rose petal. The attack is soft, becoming round and fruity and ending with an impressive and harmonious freshness. It is well-balanced and light in the mouth. The final is long and persistant, with notes of bergamot and coffee.

This liqueur wine is unique and very representative of Virgile’s style.

Food & : Goes well with orange-based dishes, ganaches, gingerbread and teabread. It is perfect with a chocolate Marquise, or Early Grey flavoured custard.
