Rhonéa - Our Vintage Natural Sweet Wines - Bois Doré, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, 2015

‘Tasty wines for tasty moments’, that’s what the Rhonéa signature range stands for.

Story

The story
As in cooking, we carefully select terroirs and grape varieties to best express the original flavours of each appellation in a fruity, expressive style with silky tannins. Each cuvée is enjoyable from the moment it is bottled. The final blending is carried out with Chefs Disciples d'Escoffier, so that each wine is associated with the world of gastronomy from the start.
Terroir
Sand, marl and clay-limestone soils
Vinification
Grapes are hand-harvested and sent to the cellar where they are destemmed, cold-pressed and transferred into stainless steel vats that are regulated at low temperatures (6-8°C) to preserve the aromas.
Fermentation lasts two to four weeks. When the times come, it is blocked by the addition of alcohol to obtain a wine of 15° alc./vol and a concentration of 110 grams per liter of residual sugar.
Ageing
12 months in oak barrels (one and two-years).
