Dolin is among the few remaining independent producers of Vermouth and the last producing Vermouth de Chambery. Dolin continues to make the authentic product according to the principles which earned Chambery France's only A.O. for Vermouth back in 1932. This means production in Chambery itself, maceration of real plants rather than pre-prepared infusions, and the unique addition of sugar as opposed to other sweetening products. The finished Dolin Vermouth contains 75-80% wine, much more than those by the large international concerns. Dolin Vermouths are notably lighter, drier and less pungent than their larger commercial counterparts. The dry has a subtle, slightly grassy nose, mingled with aromas of lime, thyme, and white wine. On the palate it is herbaceous and refreshingly crisp.
