    Made by Alain Razungles, professor of oenology at Montpellier University, this is unquestionably one of France’s finest muscats. It comes from the village of Vingrau, a superb terroir, has a sumptuous concentration, a floral bouquet (jasmine) and a clean, controlled palate smacking of lexia raisins.
