2021 Beaumes-de-Venise Rouge

Domaine de Durban
Discount Eligible $23.00
SOLD OUT

Back in the late seventies, Durban’s flagship fortified Muscat is what originally drew Kermit to the domaine, but once there, he fortuitously discovered their inky, garrigue-scented rouges. This Beaumes-de-Venise is a vigorous blend of Grenache, Syrah, and a splash of Mourvèdre. I’d call it “a wine’s wine”—it is down to earth, will stain your hands and teeth, and is deep and tangy, with peppery cassis fruit and a whiff of warm rosemary. With this bottle, I was inspired to recreate a dish I had recently at a favorite restaurant: roasted beets with summery black cherries, fresh herbs, and a light tahini cream sauce. The elements all came together and recalled the earthiness, juicy dark fruit, and herbal qualities I love so much in this wine.

Vintage Chart

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
