Description

Domaine de Coyeux Muscat Beaumes de Venise Cuvée Les Trois Fonts is a sweet white wine from the from the eastern central region of the southern half of the Rhône Valley. Muscat Beaumes de Venise is a “vin doux naturel”, a lightly fortified wine whereby fermentation is arrested by the addition of 95% ABV grape spirit.

“Les Trois Fonts” is produced by Domaine de Coyeux, a beautifully located winery owned by Yves and Catherine Nativelle. It is a 130 hectare estate located in a prime location on a hill above Beaumes-de-Venise benefiting from the region’s Mediterranean climate and the Mistral wind. The vines are planted at an altitude of 260 metres above sea level, where the soil comes from one of the very rare outcrops of the Comtadine region’s trias. The grapes grown are Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvedre and white Muscat. The Beaumes de Venise wines of Coyeux have been praised by Robert Parker as “superb,” and Gault Millau calls Coyeux “the best.”

Domaine de Coyeux Muscat Beaumes de Venise Cuvée Les Trois Fonts is produced from 100% Muscat Blanc Petits Grains grapes. After harvest, which are carefully selected for their high sugar content and aromatic intensity. the grapes undergo cold-pressing, complete with stalks and are then fermented for seven to nine days in temperature controlled stainless steel vats at low temperatures of 4 to 6 degrees. The fermentation is stopped by the addition of grape spirit (a process known as Mutage) leaving the resultant wine at an alcoholic strength of 15.5% by volume and 110 grams of sugar per litre.

The mutage process in Muscat de Beaumes de Venise contributes to the distinct flavour profile, characterized by intense aromatics, rich fruitiness, complexity, and a delightful balance between sweetness and acidity. This makes it a versatile food wine which makes it a usfeul pairing for both savory and sweet dishes.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
