Rouge du Roussillon apricots benefit from the heat and sun of the south of France and are slowly macerated to bring out the warm intensity of the fruit. It is so difficult to find a perfect apricot, but Giffard remedies this problem with perfect fruit year round. The Abricot du Roussillon is made exclusively from the slow maceration of these apricots for the perfect intensity of fruits and purity of character. The bouquet of Giffard’s Abricot du Roussillon is revealed in stages: the sweetness of very ripe apricot at first, then fresh vegetal notes, finishing with sweet spices, vanilla. Caramelized apricot leads the palate, followed by subtle hints of almond and a crisp, tart finish, like fresh apricot compote.
