Domaine de la Chapelle Oubliée
Chapelle Oubliée was founded in 2019 following the acquisition of decades old Muscat vineyards in Beaumes-de-Venise. Subsequently, vineyards in the Côtes du Rhône Villages of Seguret were added. The domaine takes its name from the old Chapelle Notre Dame d'Aubusson that was built in 1771 and - hard to reach and almost forgotten - overlooks some of the vineyards producing the Domaine's red varietals.
Clay limestone dominates the parcels which are all under careful mechanical weed control.
Chapelle Oubliée produces four types of wine:
- Beaumes-de-Venise Cru, a natural sweet wine from the cru appellation of the same name
- Lieu Dit "Trois Évêques", a dry Muscat wine
- Côtes du Rhône Villages Seguret, a classic Southern Rhone Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre blend
- M Brut, a sparkling wine produced under the methode traditionelle and classed as Vin de Mousseux de Quality (MDQ)
