The Hommage is a versatile companion to many deserts. Most expressive with dry biscuits and dry fruits, it retains all its character served with a fruit tart, puff paestry and chocolate or coffe desserts. To appreciate as well with duck breasts and figs. Served with a roquefort or a silton, it is marvellous. Simply as an aperitif with some dry fruit or grilled almonds. It's also a good compagnion for a classy cigars.

wine enthusiast 92 pts"Made from a blend of 75% white and 25% black Muscat à petits grains, this salmon-hued vin doux naturel boasts a spicy, nutty charm. Flavors of dried fig and candied quince are shaded by hazelnut, anise and dried orange peel. It's a delicately textured yet impeccably balanced, exuberant wine, with a long, honeyed finish. Enjoy now–2027. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"
