Château Beaulieu is owned by the Guenant 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. For more than two thousand years, the Beaulieu vineyard has flourished, nestled in the crater of Provence’s only volcano. Château Beaulieu, with its 140 hectares of vineyards planted in the heart of the extinct volcano crater of the Trévaresse, 400 meters above sea level, is one of the largest estates of the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence. The site which, facing the Lubéron, dominates the valley of the Durance, the Abbey of Silvacane and the Roque d’Anthéron, offers a very diversified soil. There are different exposures of the slopes: south, north and mainly west. In addition to clay and limestone soils, a large part of the vineyard is planted in volcanic soil characterized by the presence of basalt, which is the basis of the development of a real typicity of our wines.
Clear salmon pink in colour. Abound with redcurrant and wild strawberry perfumes that develop into juicy white peach and pear notes. The palate shows fresh acidity and is balanced by beautifully minerals, giving an elegant mouthfeel and refreshing finish.
