Chambéry dry vermouth presents an elegant stylistic counterpoint to the assertive character of vermouth from Marseilles. Dolin Dry Vermouth de Chambéry embodies this lighter style, beginning as a delicate Ugni Blanc wine which is then infused with 17 botanicals, fortified, and slightly sweetened to 25g/L. This results in a lively alpine vermouth perfect for Martinis and aperitifs.
Reminiscent of fino sherry, though heavier and with a slightly oily texture. Flavours of almond, dried apricot and flor yeast-like characteristics are evident, along with wormwood and other green herbs, although delicate. Finishes bone dry with a persistent nut and stonefruit aftertaste.
Enjoy in a Bamboo, Brooklyn, or Pompier. Use whenever a dry, extra dry, or French vermouth is called for.
