  • Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2017, Domaine des Bernardins, 15% vol, 37.5cl

    Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2017, Domaine des Bernardins, 15% vol, 37.5cl

    WR02

    The wines from the Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise appellation are created by adding a neutral grape spirit to the partially fermented grape juice of the Muscat grape to produce what the French call a vin doux naturel (naturally sweet wine). The addition of the spirit kills off the yeasts and leaves the wine high in alcohol (15%) as well as high in residual sugar.

     

    The house and cellars of Mme Castaud-Maurin’s lovely property are in the village of Beaumes de Venise itself, while the 17 hectares of Muscat à petits grains, 25% of which are in fact ‘noirs’, are on the lower slopes of Mont Ventoux – a quite beautiful situation.

     

    The wine has a fine delicate character of almonds and apricots, and the use of black Muscat gives it a lovely orange tint in the glass.

  • Côtes du Rhône 2016, Domaine la Soumade, Frédéric Roméro, 14% vol, 75cl

    Côtes du Rhône 2016, Domaine la Soumade, Frédéric Roméro, 14% vol, 75cl

    RR03

    André Roméro is a most characterful and talented grower. He founded Domaine la Soumade in 1979 and was joined by his son Frédéric in 1996 on completion of his oenology studies. Today the estate covers 26 hectares, including a new plot of 2.5 hectares of the finest land in Rasteau – pure ‘Argile bleue’ with 60 year old vines.

     

    Domaine la Soumade practices  “agriculture raisonée” (sustainable winemaking) in all of  their vineyards, only treating the vines where absolutely necessary.

     

    They use organic compost which is only applied when soil deficiencies are revealed, following analysis of the soil and vine vegetation. When climatic conditions dictate they use organically permitted treatments (sulphur and copper) to protect the vines from mildew and oidium.

     

    Domaine la Soumade Côtes du Rhône is  80% Grenache Noir and 20% Syrah from low yielding (45 hl per ha) vines varying in age from 8 -15 years.

     

    The grapes are harvested by hand with the best grapes selected on a sorting table in the vineyard.

     

    Traditional winemaking with punching down of the skin cap and a regular pumping over of juice in open stainless steel tanks.

     

    Maceration of the skins lasts between 14 and 18 days with a temperature controlled fermentation.

     

    This is followed by an 18 month maturation of the wine on fine lees in stainless steel followed by a light filtration and bottling.

    “Le Pigeoulet” 2017, Frédéric et Daniel Brunier, Vin de pays de Vaucluse, 14% vol, 75cl

    RR19

    Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, established in 1891, has been run by the Brunier family for five generations. The estate’s vineyards are situated on the famous “Plateau de la Crau” the stony terrace where there is nothing but “galets roulés”, or rounded stones, as far as the eye can see. This special terroir imparts a highly distinctive minerality to the wines.

     

    With the Bruniers’ expansion into the satellite appellations, Daniel and Frédéric have produced some delightful fruit driven, crunchy wines.

     

     

    “Le Pigeoulet” comes from two separate parcels, 10 hectares on the lower southwest facing slopes of Mont Ventoux and 3 hectares on the east bank of the Rhône, 15km north of Avignon. The blend is 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Cargnan and Cinsault and ageing is in foudres for 12 months.

  • Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 2016, “Friandise”, Domaine Melody, 13% vol, 75cl

    Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 2016, “Friandise”, Domaine Melody, 13% vol, 75cl

    RR23

    This 16.5ha property is situated near Mercurol. The vineyards are highly fragmented and spread over many sites within the appellation. The grapes are hand picked with careful selection both in the vineyard and on the sorting table in the winery. Low yields give a great concentration of flavour in the wine.

     

    The 2016 vintage in the Rhône Valley is superb. 100% Syrah, the wine is dark and opaque in the glass. The nose is rich with fruit and spice in the background with a full and rounded palate. Strong flavours of blackberries and blackcurrants, hints of pepper and leather over a soft, but well structured, tannin base.
