Famille Perrin Muscat Beaumes de Venise Blanc - 2014

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.

Presentation

The vintage
The 2014 vintage is surprising for the region. It is characterised by a mild, damp winter, a hot and dry spring and a temperate and humid summer. An unusual year, a winemaker year. Bud break was very early, flowering took place in ideal conditions and fruit set was excellent, especially on Grenache. However, work in the vineyard and rigorous monitoring of the vineyard until harvest were necessary with wet months of July and August, favouring the vegetative growth. The harvest of white grapes took place under bright sunshine, with very nice analytical balances.
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.
Grapes
Muscat blanc à gros grains
Muscat blanc à petits grains
