Whether you are looking for a sweet white wine to accompany fruit desserts, blue cheese, melon, foie gras or simply as an aperitif, this aromatic, sweet and yet refreshing wine Muscat de Beaumes de Venise presents itself as a perfect match. The wine comes from the house Domaine Fontavin in the Rhône Valley in southern France. The wine is made from Muscat grapes and has a lemon colour with an intense and complex bouquet of white fruit flowers, acacia honey and exotic fruits. The palate is smooth with a flavour fest of honeymelon, candied orange and dried apricot. The lively acidity makes it elegant and fresh and can easily be stored in a fridge for 2-3 weeks with its delicious flavours intact. The vines are 30 years old and grow on a 2,3 hectares vineyard at the foot of the mountain Dentelles de Montmirail. The mountain’s sandy terraces rich in limestone sediments of oysters and ammonite fossils benefit from a perfect microclimate sheltered from the The Mistral wind. The Mistral Wind is a strong, cold, northwesterly wind that blows from southern France into the Gulf of Lion in the northern Mediterranean. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted manually. By adding grape spirit before the fermentation is complete, is stays sweet and keeps a sugar level of 34 grams per litre.
The head of the house Domaine Fontavin is Hélène Chouvet, and owns 45 hectares of some of the best vineyards in 8 different municipalities in Rhône, for example Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Beaumes de Venise og Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The estate is managed exclusively by women with Hélène at the helm. All the wines are certified organic. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted manually. In the cellar additives are forbidden and the wine maker Agathe only uses natural yeast and utilizes sulphites at an absolute minimum. As all chemicals are banned from the estate, all production sites are disinfected by steam every year.
