Stunning honeysuckle, apricot blossoms in a glass! A sumptuous dessert wine that's not cloying or sickly sweet with its terrific balancing acidity. Peach flan anyone?
Muscat De Beaumes De Venise food pairings: melktert, honey spice cake, fresh fruit flan.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beaumes de Venise is a really unique district in the Southern Rhone. The reds are sumptuous and different from the rest of the Vaucluse department (it is the Northern tip of that area). It was granted cru AOC Status in the early 2000s because Beaumes de Venise grows similar grapes to the rest of Vaucluse, but their style is more suave and aromatic. The traditional wines of this are unique in heritage and are now recognized for their quality.
This is a white dessert wine made from Muscat; a style they have been recognized in for much longer than their reds.
It is a vin doux naturel, which is a style where fermentation is arrested with pure grape spirits before the yeast eats all of the natural sugar. What is left behind is the natural, rich, sweetness of the Muscat de Frontignan grape and a minimum alcohol of 15% (it can be as high as 20%, though that is rare).
This wine is rich, with a great mouthfeel, and has aroams and flavours of peach, apricot, orange blossom, dried flowers, almond, and vanilla.
It is made by Chapoutier; one of the undisputed masters of representing quality appellations in southern France.
Such a tasty example of Beames de Venise. Pair it wth fresh almonds, fruit salad, or even with something decadent like Peking Duck.
|Produced from Muscat Petits Grains wine grapes, this lovely fortified dessert wine is golden yellow with floral and grapy aromas. Great length with nicely sweet peach and ripe apricot flavours on the palate. Pair with blue cheese, fruits salads and chocolate. - Community Wine Reviews|
