Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
Its light straw colour brings out a nice fresh aroma of mimosa. As for the taste, it is balanced typed, frank, round and nervous with a coated and crisp finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Style ? Dry wines are acidic, lively and fresh while sweet wines are soft and feel round in the mouth.
Do you know ?
The first Muscats were planted in Beaumes-de-Venise by Greek colonists who settled in the region in 600 BC.
Domain and appellation
Cave Balma Venitia
The AOC Muscat of Beaumes-de-Venise is produced in the communes of Beaumes-de-Venise and Aubignan, in Vaucluse. This natural sweet wine (VDN) is produced by the cellar Balma Venitia, second highest vineyard in France, in terms of area and production.
- Terroir: Located on the land of the Massif des Dentelles, Muscat is based on soils of sandy loams in the south and clay-limestone in the north.
- Viticulture: This wine is composed of a single grape: Muscat with small white grains. Manual harvesting is done when the fruits have reached ideal ripeness.
- Vinification: After a brief skin maceration, the must is extracted using tanks and pneumatic presses. The alcoholic fermentation, carried at a low temperature of 12-14 °C, is stopped in order to keep all the fruity flavors of the Muscat.
