Muscat De Beaumes De Venise, M Chapoutier, Southern Rhone, France, 2017 Half Bottle

Grape: 100% Muscat Petit Grains 

Golden yellow in colour and a powerful, rich and elegant nose of candied fruits and flowers. A well-balanced palate, with a great length and good, steady aromatic persistence. Not too excessively sweet.

Why not chill to 12° / 13° and serve with desserts such as sorbets, fruit salads or chocolate desserts. Or serve at 15° /16° and serve with fromage blanc and blue cheeses.

The hillsides of Beaumes de Venise and the plain are protected from the strong Mistral (North) wind by the contours of the “Dentelles de Montmirail”. They face south and are thus well exposed to sunlight. The soils are composed of soft limestone with sandstone zones and sandy molasses. Only the ripe grapes are harvested and each plot requires several pickings. alcoholic fermentation starts slowly, with the temperature never exceeding 15°C. When the residual sugar level is reached, a fortification is carried out by the addition of alcohol, stopping fermentation. Maturation occurs in tanks.
