Description

Domaine de Durban Muscat Beaumes de Venise

Domaine de Durban Muscat Beaumes de Venise is a gently fortified wine is made entirely from the Muscat de Frontignan a Petits Grains, which has been matured in old barriques.

Aromas of apricot, peach, Seville orange and ripe pear come to mind when sampling Domaine de Durban Muscat Beaumes de Venise, an exemplary dessert wine.

Domaine de Durban is located in the hills to the east of the village of Beaumes-de-Venise and is owned and run by Madame Leydier and her 2 sons.

This is the only area of the Rhone Valley where the Muscat grape is grown and it is from Muscat that the famous “Vin doux naturel” of Beaumes-de-Venise is made.

Muscat grapes are cultivated and vinified using the same techniques for table wine before pure alcohol is added to the wine bringing the strength to over 15 degrees.

Located on the hillsides of Beaumes-de-Venise, Domaine de Durban owes its reputation to its famous Muscat, a sweet, aperitif wine grown beneath the Dentelles of Montmirail and sheltered from the Mistral.

The Domaine is surrounded by a pine forest and offers a panoramic view of the Durban vineyard.

Located on a hillside plateau overlooking the village of Beaumes-of-Venice, the Domaine of Durban was founded in 1159. http://www.domainedurban.com/en/domaine-durban.php

Method:-

The Domaine dominates the vineyard and offers an impressive panorama. Since the Sixties, the Leydier family has nurtured and developed the production of the now internationally-renowned wines.

The Domaine de Durban is located on soil composed of a mixture of Trias (40%) and Clay-Limestone (60%), which brings richness and complexity to the wines.

The sloped vineyard benefits from broad exposure to the sun and a micro-climate which helps it to produce an excellent harvest of fine wines every year.

The relationship between the vines and the soil offers ideal conditions for the production of muscats, fruity white wines and rich, textured red wines.

Henriques & Henriques Madeira 10 yo Sercial

Very intensely aromatic, with almost tropical fruit notes appearing fleetingly, then nuts and citrus fruits. On the palate there is a little note of marzipan, and a rich, mouth-filling texture that makes this initially quite full and lush, with a depth of dry, acid-streaked toffee, spice and marmalade. Lovely structure and length here, with fine definition and finesse.

Fonseca Terra Prima

Silky-smooth aromas of crushed red berry fruits and chocolate with little herbal nuances. On the palate that herbal quality is still there but some pure, velvety, cherry and plum fruit fills in nicely, the subtle sweetness developing but staying balanced by a certain acidity and a fairly nimble, lighter-bodied character. A spicy finish too in a style that is not heavy and very sippable. 89/100 Tom Cannavan, www.wine-pages.com

Taylors 20 Year Old Tawny

Intense amber tawny colour. Opulent and voluptuous nose of complex spicy, jammy and nutty aromas, hints of orange flower and a fine oakiness coming from the long period of aging in cask. The palate is full of very rich and concentrated flavour and has a long mellow finish.

Henriques and Henriques 3 Year Old Medium Rich

This has a nut-brown colour and oxidised, nutty nose, with a hint of chocolate and more raisiny fruit. On the palate it has an intensity and sweetness that makes and immediate mark, with quite a broad mid-palate and a touch of alcoholic heat, with some caramel and fruity flavours, with a fine acid structure that is beautifully fresh and crisp in the finish.

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge Quick View

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge 2016

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge is made in the same style as the rimage wines of Banyuls. From 100% Grenache Noir grown on the southfacing broken schists and marne soils and yields of 25 hl/ha, the grapes are subsequently sorted, destemmed and vinified in the normal way. The alcohol is added while the wine is still in the vat (mutage sur les grains), which slows down the final fermentation, allowing a longer period of maceration and thereby conferring greater richness. This Maury is ruby with violet tints and the nose eloquently expresses framboise, cherry and crème-de-cassis. It is smooth in the mouth, the red fruits reinforced by bitter chocolate and spice as well as fine tannins. 0.75l bottle. This fleshy, yet refreshing, fruity wine is a perfect match for red fruit or chocolate desserts. It is a seductive, pure Grenache varietal that also pairs well with sweet and sour dishes.

Fonseca Bin 27

Sweet and macerated fruit on the nose, initially with a little confectionery and violets, nevertheless very traditional with plenty of fruit, a moderate substance and a gently creamy midpalate. There is plenty of peppery grip, good acidity and a very firm structure. All in all though it has a nice style, with good substance to it, plenty of dark, tobacco-laced fruits and an attractive roasted-herb edge
