About The Wine

A rich and full-bodied sweet wine made in Rhone by one of the region's pioneers of the style.

Muscat Beaumes de Venise is a Vin Doux Naturel (VDN) which means the natural sweetness of the wine is preserved by the addition of spirit to stop the fermentation process, as a result VDN have a slightly higher alcohol level which adds to the overall perception of body and richness.

This particular wine offers sweet, creamy caramel, quince and orange zest, the palate is slippery and luscious, but the acid pronounced and fresh, there is a lovely bitter twist of herbal notes on the close that will keep you sipping away.

Perfect at the end of the meal or as an accompaniment to cheese at any time.

About Domaine des Bernardins

Named for the Bernadin monks who first owned and farmed the land, Domaine des Bernardins is one of most experienced and respected producers in the small Rhone appellation of Beaumes de Venise, The Castaud family have been making wine there since the start of the nineteenth century and they make both styles permitted in the region, reds from Grenache and Cinsault and sweet, fortified whites from Muscat (Vin Doux Naturels).

The farming is strictly sustainable with predominantly organic practises and the cellar is a mix of traditional and modern allowing the precision required for success when making Vins Doux Naturels. Their Muscat Beaumes de Venise is a must try for cheese lovers, fabulously rich but impeccably balanced and in a handy half bottle perfect for after lunch, enjoy!

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Decanter Magazine

"Pale peachy pink colour. Full-bodied, with deep quince flavour, a touch of rhubarb. Acidity is quite marked, certainly balanced. Ends quite savoury despite the sweetness on the mid-palate. Very silky, tons of glycerol. Plenty of dry extract, it makes you salivate. Likely to age well."- Matt Walls (Decanter Magazine)
