The « AOP » of this naturally sweet wine dates back to 1945. Located on the hills of Beaumes de Venise, on the slopes south of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountains, the grape variety “Muscat à petits grains” produces a sweet wine that is round, rich and very aromatic.
100% Muscat à petits grains
Vines selected from the southerly slopes of the Appellation.
Soils made up of stony limestone, sandstone, sand and marl. The strong Mistral wind in this area plays a part by protecting this fragile grape variety from disease.
Pale golden yellow colour. Powerful nose with notes of Muscat, quince jelly and white fruit. An elegant and mellow Muscat wine with an aerial finish (June 2014).
Skillet-cooked foie gras

If the appellation dates from 1945, the qualities of this wine were already well known in the Roman times as it is said that Pliny the Elder mentioned Beaumes de Venise Muscat wine in one of his works on “Natural History”.
