Château Bon Baron
A spirit of perseverance: that’s probably what best characterizes Jeanette van der Steen and her husband, Piotr, who planted their first vines in 2003 for private use and today own over 17 hectares, 15 of which are in a single block on the banks of the Meuse river. These two economists, who came from the Netherlands to live in the countryside in Wallonia, have built up one of the most renowned vineyards in Belgium.
Muscat Petits Grains
Muscat is most often presented in the form of a dessert wine (those of Rivesaltes or Beaumes de Venise are particularly famous). Here, it is made according to the classic dry white wine vinification process. It nevertheless has a slight sweetness, with a residual sugar content of between 6 and 9 gr/l depending on the vintage.
Manual harvest (generally at the end of October). Fermentation at low temperature (13 °C). Aged for 6 months on the lees.
Light yellow colour, beautiful limpidity.
Very aromatic nose typical of Muscat à petits grains, with a hint of fruit.
Silky and full on the palate, well-controlled acidity, long and balanced finish.
It goes well with a vegetarian dish or an Asian curry-coconut dish. For dessert, with a lemon tart.
