Chapoutier Muscat de Beaumes de Venise Vin Doux Naturel 2015

Sweet Wine from France - Rhone
Review Date : 09-Feb-2018
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with some depth, paler edged. The nose is soft and elegant in proportion with moderately concentrated aromas ripe grapes, tropical fruits and suggestions of raisins, musk and honied notes, revealing subtle savoury stonefruit elements. Sweet to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has moderately concentrated flavours of ripe grapes, musk and exotic florals, with raisin hints. The mouthfeel is bright and zesty with good energy to balance the richness and lusciousness, with clean spirit drive. The wine is smooth-flowing with soft and rounded textures, and possesses good linearity with underlying alcohol, carrying to a rich, musky, honied finish with some acid bite. This is an elegantly concentrated Muscat vin doux naturel with intense flavours of ripe grapes and musk with good drive and zesty acid cut. Serve as an aperitif and with fruit desserts over the next 3-4 years. Muscat Petits Grains fermented with the addition of alcohol spirit to stop fermentation at 15.5% alc. and approx. 115 g/L RS. (375 ml) 17.5+/20 Dec 2017 RRP $29.99
