Back in February we attended a trade show called Wine Paris (I know, someone had to do it...), and one of the standouts of the Rhone Valley for us was the 2021 Domaine des Bernardins "Beaumes de Venise".
The name of the wine is super long, and the label is decidedly old school, but pay that no mind - this stuff is crazy delicious. While $27.99 is not my everyday price point, the quality of this offering has me lining this up for a Saturday night bottle for sure.
So what's the deal here?
It might seem like French wine is a fixed and well-established thing but it’s ever changing. The southern Rhone Valley is the prime example: new AOPs (yeah, we don’t call them AOCs anymore; that changed too), new styles and, ahem, new prices. Take Beaumes de Venise, as an example, where the name once meant one of the most delicious unknown sweet wines of Europe. But with the changes wrought by the fashion and climate change, there are lots of intense red wines being made in this hilly region nearby the more famed Gigondas AOP. Think of Beaumes de Venise as bargain Gigondas. Or really, really bargain Chateaneuf-du-Pape.
And given how much I love Chateauneuf du Pape, I'm all about that...especially at this price 😁
Only hiccup here is that we only have access to 50 cases of this wine for the entire vintage. So don't dawdle, if you know what I mean. At quantities like that small, I sometimes buy 3 or six so that I can drink a few immediately and then stash some away for Thanksgiving or something like that. (Actually, did I just find my Turkey Day wine in March?!?!?)
Happy Wednesday y'all! We hope you love this one as much as we do!
Let's do this!
