Domaine de Durban Muscat Beaumes de Venise, 2020

The bottle was in a paper bag, but one sniff identified it as Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, the lively dessert wine of the Southern Rhone. And, of course, Domaine de Durban is one of the oldest, best and best known of these dessert Muscats. It was a delightful finish to our tasting.

Medium light straw. Apricot, peach, orange zest, fruit salad. Fresh and lively. Sweet, medium long finish. One of my favorite dessert wines because of its delicacy and freshness. I gave this wine 16.5/20.
