Wine News & Reviews

2009 Domaine des Bernardins Beaumes de Venise Rouge - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"This excellent estate, which produces a very good sweet Beaumes de Venise, does an even better job with their Cotes du Rhone-Villages Beaumes de Venise, a three-fourths Grenache / one-fourth Syrah blend aged in foudre. The 2009 exhibits Provencal pepper, lavender and roasted herb notes intermixed with black currants, black cherries, truffles and spice. It is a medium to full-bodied, traditionally styled Cotes du Rhone to drink over the next several years."

2013 Domaine des Bernardins Beaumes de Venise Rouge - 86-89 PTS - WA

wa89"Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2013 Beaumes de Venise (65% Grenache and 35% Syrah that’s aged all in concrete) is a pretty, perfumed and Provençal effort that gives up plenty of peppery herbs, dark fruits and garrigue. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced on the palate, with solid underlying acidity, it’s quite good and should drink nicely on release, with a solid 3-4 years of prime drinking. - Jeb Dunnuck"

2016 Domaine des Bernardins Beaumes de Venise Rouge - 93 PTS - WA

wa93"If I had some concerns about how the 2015 would turn out, I've no question regarding the quality of the 2016 Beaumes de Venise, undoubtedly one of the top wines of the appellation. Complex aromas of flowering thyme, lavender and bay leaf join cracked pepper, roasted meat and red raspberries in this tank-aged blend of 70% Grenache (including a small proportion of Grenache Blanc), 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre. Full-bodied, silky in texture, with a long, vibrant, pepper and berry-laden finish, it should drink well for more than a decade. - Joe Czerwinski"

2016 Domaine des Bernardins Beaumes de Venise Rouge - 94 PTS - DECANTER

decanter logo 250"Alive with peppery freshness and herbal bitters, rosemary and thyme. Full-bodied, very fresh and lively on the palate, with sculpted fruit and tannin, and a discreet bitter saline twist on the finish. It's very well balanced, and deeply savoury and herbal. Drinking Window 2019 - 2026"
