Domaine de Coyeux
Beaumes de Venise Cru red blend 2007
70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault all processed separately from different plots lying at 300 mt above the sea level. We were lucky enough to find the last bottles available of this old vintage. Domaine de Coyeux usually conducts a long, pre-fermentation must’s maceration and this method offers various advantages:
✓ It releases the desired colour’s intensity in an alcohol fee environment.
✓ It avoids the extraction of unwanted tannins and preserves the fruity dimension of the wines.
✓ It allows the musts to reveal their aromas in all their intensity.
Fermentation is always carried out in a spontaneous way by using only the active yeasts naturally present on the grapes. No selected yeast by any means! The wine matured in stainless steel vats until 2014 and then has been racked and transferred to used barrels for 9 months and then bottled.
This cuvee is known and sold in France as Les Cavares whose historical name refers to the Gallic tribes living in the Southern Rhone area. For the export market the brand name has been removed.
