Story

The wine
The Muscat Beaumes-de-Venise appellation is known and appreciated for its wines made from white Muscat Blanc Petits Grains, the region’s main grape variety. However, Muscat Noir Petits Grains grapes have also historically been grown in the Beaumes de Venise appellation, and have recently aroused the curiosity of winegrowers. Twenty hectares of this variety disseminated around various slopes have led to the creation of new flavours in white, rosé... and now red wines. The Cave des Vignerons de Beaumes de Venise have created a 100% red Muscat Petits Grains.
Terroir
A rich sandy-marl and clay-limestone terroir accounts for the refinement of this red Muscat.
Vinification
The black Muscat à Petits Grains grapes are picked when fully ripe. After spending time on the skins at the beginning of fermentation, the wine is fortified to achieve the true magic of this unique wine.
Varietals
Muscat blanc à petits grains

"A bit of a curiosity, the NV Muscat de Beaumes de Venise Rouge Exclusif is truly red in hue. It shows attractive floral aromas, a combination of apple blossoms and cherries. It's full-bodied and sweet but balanced by peppery notes and silky traces of tannins on the long finish. Worth a try if you get the chance." [+]
