Château Beaulieu

Provence, provence France

Château Beaulieu is owned by the Guénant family and is situated near Rognes in the Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, which lies along the Mediterranean coast to the west of the Côtes de Provence appellation. Although the vineyards have been farmed since Roman times, the Château itself was built in 1576 as a stronghold for King Henry III of France.

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 fully ripe grapes, 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, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cinsault and Vermentino. 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 fresh wild strawberry and redcurrant aromas and notes of juicy white peach and pear. Rounded on the mid-palate, it has great levels of natural acidity that give the wine its refreshing finish.
