Located at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, Beaumes de Venise has an unusually warm climate. This allows the grapes to reach full maturity and therefore produce a Vin Doux Naturel (a fortified wine) that will pair perfectly with desserts, especially fruity ones. The winemaking process follows that of white wine for the most part; the grapes are crushed immediately. Racking of the must, low-temperature fermentation. Fortification to keep a minimum of 125g of residual sugar. Fortification in stages. Exclusively stainless steel tanks with early bottling upon filtration.
Impressively fresh and perfumed, the Muscat Beaumes de Venise offers up a bouquet of floral notes, backed by hints of pineapple, muskmelon and stone fruit. Full-bodied and rich, carrying considerable residual sugar, this vintage is more of an after-dinner style than a light, refreshing apéritif, but it still represents a high-quality example of the appellation. Drink it young, while the floral notes remain vibrant.
