Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury is located amongst the Côte-Rôtie vineyards in the Northern Rhône and is the oldest continuously operating wine producer in the Rhône Valley. Muscat Beaumes de Venise has been part of Vidal-Fleury's range since 1947. Pure alcohol is added to prematurely stop the fermentation retaining the natural sweetness of the wine. The resulting alcoholic content of the wine although fortified is no higher than a standard table wine. On the nose, there are aromas of grapefruit, orange peel, honey and dried apricot. The palate gives flavours of fresh white peach and the sweetness is perfectly balanced by the acidity leading to a cleansing, long finish. This white dessert wine fuses refreshing acidity with fresh and dried fruit characters to produce an elegant sweet wine that can be enjoyed with fruit based desserts, cheeses or as an aperitif. Please note that it is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor if you are under the age of 18.
