Since 1967, three generations have succeeded one another with the same passion for wine, the same know how and respect for tradition .
From a selection of our best parcels, this wine composed of grape varieties, Grenache, Syrah, and Mouvrèdre is promised a delicious future!
All our bottles are uniquely numbered !
Black grape originally from the island of Sardinia (Italy), it is one of the most cultivated varieties in the world. High quality grape, it gives generous, colourful and powerful red wines important to the ageing process.
Syrah is a French and Swiss grape, it is known for its fruity aroma. Red fruits: raspberry, currant, blueberry and blackberry. It is found in the Rhône Valley, Provence and the Mediterranean.
A black variety of Spanish origin, it is often used to enhance the composition and complexity of wines. The addition with other southern grapes allows for a more flexible and affordable young wine.
Muscat small white grape
A white variety of Greek origin, grown since antiquity in most Mediterranean wine producing countries. This variety has a musky aromatic flavour, firm, juicy and very sweet.
A white grape which was originally cultivated in the Northern regions of the Côtes du Rhône, Viognier gives a high quality full bodied wine white, thick, creamy, very fragrant, with floral flavours (violet) and fruity (mango and apricot).
A French white grape originally from Burgundy with a very high potential for a quality dry wine with aromas of fresh fruit: (banana, blackcurrant, pear, and mango); dry fruits (almonds and hazelnut) and citrus fruits (lemon and orange blossom).
The French white Marsanne, native to the Drôme (Montélimar), has long been found in the region of Saint Peray in the Ardèche and Tain l’Hermitage in the Drôme. Marsanne is in most cases associated with Roussanne.
With aromas of dried apricot, acacia, honeysuckle, quench and dried fruit: (almond, hazelnut, walnuts).
Similar to the Marsanne, the Roussanne white grape is said to be native to Montélimar in the Drôme area. It is also found in the region of Tain l’Hermitage in the Drôme and Saint Peray in the Ardèche. Roussanne is a noble grape variety, producing wines of very high quality, fine, straw yellow in colour, powerful with a remarkable bouquet, in association with other white grape varieties; Roussanne gives an aromatic supplement and elegance that the latter would not have had without it.
With aromas of apricot, hawthorn, honey, lime and peony.

Just a tiny reminder, the abuse of alcohol is dangerous to your health
Late 2013, Balméens winemakers decided to create a new emblazoned wine bottle going from Beaumes de Venise to A.O.P Beaumes de Venise (red). Winemakers envisage a coat of arms representing the 4 municipalities which form A.O.P. Beaumes de Venise:
Beaumes: Lafare; La Roque Alric; and Suzette. As a result, the coat of arms containing all or part of the coat of arms of each village was born:
* For Beaumes of Venise:
The 3 golden Taus symbolizing the reunification of the 3 Christian communities of Beaumes: Saint Veran; and Aubune.
* For Lafare:
Their coat of arms is a castle under which passes a wolf. Only the wolf was used in the final coat of arms due to visual issues.
* For La Roque Alric:
Golden azure cross, with four flecks of ermine coloured sand. The cross was chosen and associated with the new Beaumes coat of arms.
* For Suzette:
Firstly, three azure golden bands, the second, golden crawling wolf. Only the wolf was used mirroring the selection from Lafare.
A ring circles the bottle touching either side of the coat of arms representing “The Alliance” between the 4 communities.
The addition of the completed emblazoned bottles was introduced on 27th May, 2015!
