Dolin Blanc Vermouth de Chambery ReviewDolin Blanc Vermouth de Chambery
Dolin produces their Vermouth in Chambéry itself. Vermouth is a fortified, aromatized wine; the ingredients are wine, herbs and plants, grape spirit and sugar. Once the capital of the Duchy of Savoy, this bustling mountain town is now the commercial center of the French Alps. 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. Even the Blanc and Rouge retain great balance, with the sugar never cloying, and just enough bitterness to whet the appetite. Each can be enjoyed as aperitif on ice, with a twist of citrus, or in a broad array of traditional cocktails.
