"Intense and complex nose with preserved fruit aromas and a citrus, peach and pear flavour." 

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 grapes are entirely handpicked and the wine is tank fermented with a yield of no more than 30 hl/ha. 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.
