Biodynamic, unctuous, voluptuous, rich, sexy, GSOH, NSA, WLTM. Swipe right.
A clean, fruity, unctuous journey through history. Almost 2,000 years ago a Roman author and naturalist called Pliny the Elder wrote that: "The Muscat grape has been grown for a long time in Beaumes and its wine is remarkable." Thanks to people like Elizabeth and Philippe Bernard this legacy still rings true today.
Domaine La Ligi̬re is a small family run biodynamic and soon to be certified organic winery. It used to part of a large coop, until it was taken over by Elizabeth and Philippe Bernard, who realised how good the grapes were and started making the wines themselves. To maintain the authenticity and purity, the wine is bottled without filtering or fining, something that can only really be done if the wine is incredibly clean and cellar practices are incredibly careful. The result is clean, silky and dark with an almost feline quality. Guaranteed to make you purr.
