This is a tiny town in the Northern Rhone, famous for its red wine made from Syrah and white from Viognier. I liked the Cote du Ventoux Rouge 2009 (60% syrah, 30% grenache, 20% others) with its blueberry flavors, yet went wild for the white Muscat d BeaumesdeVenise 2008.
The whites are a blend of Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, and others, including blends of Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussane. There are 16 individual villages, with BeaumesdeVenise and Rastau having a separate AC for their Vin Deux Natural. In the Southern Rhone.
