France - Rhone Valley - Beaumes de Venise AOC

The wine offers beautiful aromas of spices and black fruits. Tasty and structured, it has an incredible ageing potential for the appellation. A high level of acidity, favoured by the altitude at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail.

wa90"With grapes for the 2019 Beaumes de Venise coming from parcels up to 600 meters above sea level, the 2019 Beaumes de Venise contains a bit of green peppercorn character alongside red raspberries, garrigue and hints of leather. A cofermented blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 10% Cinsault that's then aged in a mix of barrels and tank, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and easy to drink. - Joe Czerwinski”
