Famille Perrin Muscat Beaumes de Venise Blanc - 2017

Located at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, Beaumes de Venise benefits from a hot climate. This allows great maturities that produce a Vin Doux Naturel, pairing well with desserts and fruits.

Story

The vintage
This 2017 vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential.
Description
Located at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, Beaumes de Venise has a particularly warm climate. This allows the grapes to reach full maturity and therefore produce a Vin Doux Naturel (fortified wine) that will pair perfectly with desserts, especially fruity ones.
Situation
On the Dentelles de Montmirail between the town of Carpentras and the village of Vacqueyras.
Terroir
Eroded porous limestone mixed with red clay and a large quantity of sand.
Process
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.
Varietals
Muscat blanc à gros grains
Muscat blanc à petits grains

Advice

Tasting notes
Pretty golden dress. The nose offers spring notes of acacia and rose flowers and aromas of white peach. The palate has a very good balance between sweetness and acidity and develops aromas of honey, apricots and fresh almonds. Very nice length.
Serving
Serve at 7°C to 8°C with any dessert except chocolate desserts.

"”Rambunctious peach, lychee and quince notes tumble around in this dessert version, with a splash of kumquat and bitter orange knitting up the unctuous finish. Drink now through 2020. ""
