Muscat Beaumes de Venise - Domaine Bernardins - Vin Doux Naturel - Rhone - France
Butterscotch and glazed fruit on the nose as well as apricot, ripe pear and floral notes. It has a broad palate with similar notes on tasting.
It shows really well alongside paté and roquefort but also fruit tarts, pastries and chocolate desserts. Serve chilled. One of the very best estates in the village.
“It has an enticing satsuma-skin aroma, grapey and slightly waxy. It’s very full bodied but has the intensity of fruit, acidity and bitterness to bring balance and freshness. A particularly concentrated vintage with real impact.” Matt Walls, Decanter 2018-11-01
