Chateau Redortier Beaumes de Venise - $17.00

Chateau Redortier Beaumes de Venise(No rating yet)

Wine geeks know of Gigondas and Vacqueras that show off Grenache like no other. Bordering both is Beaumes de Venise which is known for fortified Muscat. On a steep hillside (at 1500 ft!) twin sisters Sabine and Isabelle make this earthy, spicy blend of Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. A gorgeous wine.

From the producer.

The sisters Sabine and Isabelle de Menthon beam when they talk about their 40+ acres of vines in the appellation of Beaumes-de-Venise. The vines are a great source of pride to the Menthon sisters and they hold them quite dear. Fifty-five year-old plantings of Grenache, Syrah, and Counoise from 1574 foot elevations are handpicked, sorted a minimum of two times and fermented from indigenous yeast. The wines are raised in cement tanks and finished in large oak foudres – thereby capturing the fragrant natural aromas of fig, sweet spice, plum and warm earth, all without manipulation or overextraction.
 

Temporarily out of stock. Sorry about that!

  • Porron Decanter

    Porron Decanter

    The porron wine pitcher is a festive way to serve wine. Either use as a decanter or just pick up the porron and tilt it so that a thin stream of wine pours directly into your mouth! It takes some skill, but it is fun at a party to see how well you and your friends master the technique. Each porron holds 1 liter, which is a perfect size to hold a bottle of wine.
