Grape(s): 100% Muscat à Petits Grains
Localization: Rhone Valley, France
Tasting Notes: While a touch spirity on the nose, whiffs of green herbs and white blossoms carry nicely onto the palate of this profoundly fruity Muscat. Yellow peach and pineapple flavors are a touch syrupy, but balanced alcohol and a lift of minerality lend freshness on the finish.
Food Pairing: Try with a young Comte cheese
The Domain: In the 1900s, in the foothills of the “Dentelles de Montmirail” (mountain range sculpted by erosion), Casimir, (Patrick and Vincent Soard’s great-grandfather) was the first member of the family who began producing Rhone Valley wines and has been rewarded for its hard work.
In the 50s, his son Louis, took over and kept producing Muscat de Beaumes de Venise. This sweet wine is made from the prestigious Rhône Valley “Muscat à petits grains” grape variety.
One step at a time, the Domaine acquired more lands with news appellations such as Beaumes de Venise (red), Ventoux (red, rosé and white) and Côtes-du-Rhône (red). Yvon is Patrick and Vincent’s father. He keeps developing this exceptional vineyard by fostering respect and care for the environment and by transmitting its passion to the younger generations. Thus, the family has turned to organic wines in 2009 following organic viticulture and practices.
Not to end it there, the Domaine uses now biodynamic methods of production and isotherapy to protect its vines and let healthy lands to future generations. Beaumes de Venise wines are endless sources of inspiration.
