Produced according to the Provençal tradition, vin cuit is a natural sweet wine cooked over a wood fire in a copper cauldron for 12 hours, then set aside in oak barrels for several years. Emblematic of Christmas celebrations, it is ideal with the 13 Provençal desserts but can also be paired with foie gras or cheese.

Made the old-fashioned way and presented in a very slender 50-cl bottle with an original design.
