~ Domaine de Coyeux, Beaumes de Venise Cru, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise ~

The origin of the vineyards of Beaumes-de-Venise is very old; the history of its wines can be traced back to 600 years before Christ, when a Greek community moved into the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail.
The first vines from the Domaine de Coyeux date back to the 1950s.

The estate was taken over in 2013 by Hugues de Feraudy, whose family was already established in Vaucluse in the tenth century.
Located on the southern side of the Dentelles de Montmirail, the Domaine de Coyeux is comprised of one continuous area of 112 hectares.

—The estate combines:
✓ Very well-known Trias soil types characterized by pores filled with clay which capture the winter water from the soil that when released in the summer will nourish the root system of the vines, thus leaving grape berries that thirst for the sun.
✓ Planted in an ideal location, the mountains of Coyeux (altitude 300m) provide air currents which bring freshness in the summer, contributing to healthy grapes and delicate aromatic wines.
✓ A climate dominated by the famous mistral winds.
Coming from the north, this wind occurs only a few hours after a rainfall, leaving time for the vines to absorb its benefits while minimizing the risks of the proliferation of parasites by rapidly drying the foliage.

A good wine is made in the vineyard!
A good vineyard is based on simple ideas:
✓ Healthy soil, modified only by respectful contributions to the environment.
✓ Grape varieties adapted to the soil and Mediterranean climate:
• for white wines, Muscat petit grain,
• for red wines, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.

✓ Vines with excess buds and leaves removed in the spring to aerate the strains and increase the leaf’s surface area exposed to the sun.
Disbudding reduces grape production and improves the concentration of aromas.
✓ Living soils, where microbial life creates organic soil enrichment through its regular twisted paths.
✓ Healthy natural conditions (altitude, exposure, and climate) allow for gentle methods necessary to the agriculture to maintain the vineyard’s perfect health.
