Domaine de Durban Beaumes-De-Venise Rouge 2020
Varietal: 70% Grenache 25% Syrah 5% Mourvèdre
A big wine that seems light as a feather? A luscious mouthful and after the feathery part, a tannin kicks in. This red Rhône has wild strawberry in its pretty fruit bouquet and dried thyme as the aftertaste subsides.
At the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail the Domaine de Durban seems to blessed by the gods. Located on a plateau of a hill overlooking the village of Beaumes de Venise, the Domaine de Durban backed by a pine forest, looks at the vineyard and offers a breathtaking panorama. It is in an exceptional setting that the Leydier family pays full attention to the production of its various wines.
On the Durban label there is a coat of arms with three “Ts.” This is the official coat of arms of the village of Beaumes-de-Venise. The modern day city was originally three villages (Aubune, Beaumes, and Saint Véran). The “T” is a tau which is also an old form of the cross. The three taus, or crosses, are for the protectors of the three villages, Sainte Anne, Saint Roch, and Saint Sébastian.
