Domaine de Durban, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise
Domaine de Durban must be one of the most gloriously situated estates in the whole of France. The property has a charming house with a panoramic view over the Ventoux in three different directions.
Mme Leydier’s son Henri makes their delicious vin doux from 25 hectares of 35-year-old vines of Muscat à petits grains. The grapes are harvested manually and after a long cold fermentation in tank, the wine is left on its fine lees for 4 to 5 months before bottling after a light filtration.
This is 100% Muscat, with aromas of peach, apricot and lychees. To be enjoyed as an aperitif with Roquefort, dark chocolate desserts, strawberries or melon.
