Muscat de Beaumes de Venise has been part of Vidal-Fleury's range since 1947 and over the years has become one of their most recognised wines. It fuses refreshing acidity with fresh and dried fruit characters to produce an elegant sweet wine that can be enjoyed with fruit based desserts, cheeses or as an aperitif. Muscat de Beaumes de Venise is a vin doux naturel, it is fermented until 8-10 degrees alcohol and then pure alcohol is then added to prematurely stop the fermentation retaining the natural sweetness of the wine. The resulting alcoholic content of the wine although fortified is no higher than a standard table wine.

This wine is light gold in colour. On the nose there are aromas of grapefruit, orange peel, honey and dried apricot. The palate continues the aromas through along with fresh white peach. The sweetness is perfectly balanced by the acidity leading to a cleansing, long finish.

Country Of Origin: France

Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury is located in the midst of the Côte-Rôtie vineyards in the Northern Rhône, and is the oldest continuously operating wine producer in the Rhône Valley. Since the early days Vidal-Fleury has established a reputation for the production of high quality wines which show individuality and the typicity of the different Rhône appellations from which they come.

Vidal-Fleury's renaissance began in 1984 when it was purchased by the Guigal family whose support allowed the business to flourish whilst still allowing it to operate independently.

However the real and most substantial changes have taken place during the last few years. A brand new winery opened in 2008 allowing Vidal-Fleury to leave their cramped historic cellar and giving them the proper space to age and bottle their wines. Shortly afterwards new winemaker Guy Sarton du Jonchay joined the company bringing with him extensive winemaking experience in the Rhône Valley. He quickly set about reviewing and improving the Vidal-Fleury range. The results of this review have been marked and we are now seeing better and better wines with every vintage released.
