2009 Domaine de Durban Muscat de Beaumes de Venise
The rare Muscat in a light, fresh style, with bright green apple, melon and candied citrus peel notes offset by a flash of verbena through the juicy finish. Not as musky and heady as most versions, with brighter definition. Drink now. (Web-2012)
Dominating the Rhône Valley from the foothills of the Mont Ventoux, Domaine Durban enjoys stunning views of the area. The wines are special too. Muscat de Beaumes de Venise is undoubtedly the best of all the Muscat wines made in southern France, and Durban is considered the best estate. The wines are a pure delight with the distinctive Muscat flavors of flowers, tropical fruit and honey. The perfect dessert wine but also delicious with foie gras, melon and Roquefort cheese. 15% abv.
