Two miles east of the town of Gigondas, across the Montmirail Mountains, begins the small appellation of Beaumes-de-Venise. The family of Daniel Begouassel began here nearly three generations ago as growers and vine plant experts. The winemaking style of Daniel Begouassel is modern and forward-thinking. His Muscat Beaumes-de-Venise always exhibits more freshness and elegance than others made in the region. From the 2004 vintage red Beaumes de Venise has become the latest `Côtes du Rhône Villages` to be awarded its own appellation.
100% Muscat made without any oak influence.
Apricot, peach, orange peel and coconut aromas followed by unctuous, opulent layers of exotic fruit flavours on the palate.
Serve with mince pies, cheesecake or profiteroles.
