Domaine de Coyeux Cuvee Les Trois Fonts Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2012

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
2012 was exceptional, as the Southern Rhône Valley benefited from climatic conditions
very different to those which affected the majority of France throughout the summer of
2012. Spring was cool and dry. Rainfall that occurred in mid-August and early
September nourished the vines and after prolonged water stress during the hot
summer. The white wines are very well balanced, marked by good varietal
characteristics.
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.
