Made to the same set of recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine Vermouth. In the late 19th century, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry won medals in Paris London, St. Louis and Philadelphia and in 1932 earned Chambéry France's only Appellation d' Origine for Vermouth. Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry is made of fine wines and botanicals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry. Together they impart a fresh and elegant nose, with a subtle and complex palate. Dolin Vermouths are notably lighter, drier and less pungent than their larger commercial counterparts. The particular mixture of plants found near Chambéry give a fresh, restrained and elegant nose, with a subtle, complex bittersweet palate. The Rouge retains great balance, with the sugar never cloying, and just enough bitterness to whet the appetite. Excellent as aperitif on ice, with a twist of citrus, or in a broad array of traditional cocktails.
