A family property for five generations, a bottle of Muscat from 1847 in the possession of the estate bears witness to the age of the estate. At the Domaine des Bernardins, they started making wine at the beginning of the 19th century. The former property of the Bernardins monks was transformed into a wine estate. Mr Louis Castaud was the first to be alarmed by the near disappearance of the traditional production of the village and obtained the appellation Muscat de Beaumes de Venise in 1945 after 10 years of work and tenacity. His family managed to make the Domaine des Bernardins prosper by combining know-how and tradition.
Pleasant to drink young. But good ageing wine can be kept from 8 to 10 years.The nose is complex, delicately spicy with black fruit aromas. The palate has a pleasant roundness with a subtle tannin structure expressing the notes of fruit and spice found in the nose.
These elegant red wines are excellent with red meat and game, with a stew or even a truffle omelette.
