Producer Note
Domaine de Coyeux is a beautifully located winery comprising 130 hectares of
vineyards in a one site block, set on a hill in a prime location at Beaumes-de-Venise.
The vines are planted at an altitude of 260 metres above sea level, where the soil
comes from one of the very rare outcrops of the Comtadine region’s trias. The
grapes grown are Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvedre and white Muscat.


Vintage
The 2008 vintage was marked, in the Rhone Valley, by an extreme climatology: hail,
storms and strong winds were the daily life of the vine growers during a good part of
the year and especially in September. The winemakers were forced to be highly
selective with the fruit in order to maintain the high quality. Despite the challenging
weather conditions, the 2008 is a fine and attractive wine.


Vineyard
The vineyard provides naturally healthy conditions, due to its altitude, exposure to the
sun and the microclimate of the vineyard and enables gentle methods of cultivation
to be employed, in order to maintain a healthy vineyard. The vines are planted in
alluvial, sandy soils. Excessive buds and leaves are removed in the spring to aerate
the strains and increase the leaf’s surface area exposed to the sun. Debudding
reduces the production of berries and concentrates the flavours and aromas in
those remaining. The living soils, where microbial life creates organic soil enrichment,
nourishes the vines.


Winemaking
The grape clusters were hand-picked at optimum maturity. The grapes were
transported in 20 kilogram boxes to retain the high quality of the fruit; they were then
destemmed and crushed. Pre- fermentation maceration took place at low
temperatures of approximately 13°C lasting fro four to six hours. The grapes were
pressed and left to settle for 72 hours, followed by fermentation in stainless steel vats
for four weeks at 8 to 10°C. This traditional style of winemaking results in a
concentration of residual sugar of 110 grams per litre.


Tasting Note
A delicious sweet wine, with notes of lychee, candied apricot and pear, tropical
pineapple complemented by honey undertones. Rich, smooth and sweet on the
palate, beautifully balanced by freshness and elegance.
