Bois Doré, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, 2014

Presentation

The wine
Its intense colour of light wood, due to several months of barrel ageing accounts for its name: Bois Doré. Made from the oldest vines in Beaumes de Venise, the plots of Muscat à Petits Grains grow on rocky terraces in the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail massif. Bois Doré reflects all the expertise of our artisan winegrowers, who work the soil and harvest the grapes by hand, picking only the ripest, sweetest grapes. After careful ageing in our cellars, this wine’s outstanding aromas develop year after year.
