Our Côtes du Rhône rosé offers a delicate, very pale pink dress. The nose opens with intense aromas of apple and small red fruits, citrus like pink grapefruit, as well as floral notes. Round, fresh and salty, our rosé comes, like our red wines, from the blend of different grape varieties, here Grenache noir and Cinsault.

The Muscat de Beaumes in Venice is an AOC produced in the town of Beaumes in Venice. It is one of the two appellations providing natural sweet wine (VDN) from the vineyards of the Rhone Valley (with Rasteau).
It is a natural sweet wine, unique in the Rhone Valley because it is made exclusively from muscat petit-grain, spread on the terroir of the Dentelles de Montmirail massif.
Our olive oil
Our olive trees, mainly Verdale and Picholine varieties, are about 50 years old and the farm is labellised HEV. All means are used to obtain a 100% natural, extra virgin, unfiltered and centrifuged French olive oil.
The cultivation, pruning and harvesting are manual. Our olive oil is extracted in a traditional mill; pressing is done with vertical presses.
The olives are milled the old way, which preserves the quality of the fruit and allows to obtain a «pure olive juice», while other oils of great distribution are often derived from seeds.
The oil is then bottled at the domain in a traditional and manual way.
It is a producer olive oil, creamy, very fruity, intense and delicate, without bitterness. The discerning palates will find notes that are sometimes fine, sometimes fiery, revealing tastes of apple or sweet almond, lemon or artichoke.
Our selection of local provençal products
In the low Rhône Valley, we already are in Provence, and in Provence less than elsewhere, we wouldn't talk about wine without talking about food, pairing, to enjoy with a glass of white, red or rosé wine, still or sparkling, sweet or dry.
And at Domaines Mousset we do not deviate from the rule. Better! In our shop there is a delicatessen area reserved for a selection of local products from Provence.
