This was the wine which introduced me to Muscat de Beaumes de Venise – and to dessert wines with food (crème brulée which it matches perfectly), when I drank the 1995 (?) in 1997.

Tea and orange peel on the nose. Smooth, sweet and rich on the tongue with some passion fruitiness which stops it being cloyingly sweet. Beautiful.
