Château Beaulieu

Provence, provence France

Château Beaulieu is owned by the Guénant family and is situated at Rognes in the Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, which lies west along the Mediterranean coast from the Côtes de Provence appellation. Although the vineyard land has been farmed since Roman times, the Château itself was built as a stronghold for the French King Henry III in 1576.

The 180 hectares of vines lie at an altitude of 400 metres, in the heart of an ancient volcanic crater, where the soils are a mix of basalt and clay. The sunny, dry Mediterranean climate ensures ripe wines, while the sea breezes moderate the hot, drying influence of the Mistral wind that blows from the North and lend the wine its delicate freshness.

The Château Beaulieu 'Cuvée Alexandre' is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault. The wine is vinified in the same way as a white wine (rather than by the 'saignée' method of drawing off part of a red wine early in its fermentation) to minimise the extraction of harsh phenolics. It is very pale in colour with bright rose petal and red raspberry aromas and a touch of liquorice spice. Rounded on the mid-palate, it has great levels of natural acidity that give the wine its perfectly fresh finish.
