Château Beaulieu Cuvée Alexandre
The flagship rosé, Cuvée Alexandre, is born of the estate's distinct volcanic terroir. With its beautiful light peach hue, the Cuvée Alexandre has a beautiful presence in the glass. Red-currant notes dominate the nose. The palate is finely balanced with an enticing acid-driven freshness that envelops its strawberry and guava notes and the solid-driven minerality, all leading to a persistent yet delicate finish.
Perfect with seafood, red mullet, or Asian fare like teriyaki chicken skewers. Also an excellent apterif.
Grapes are harvested at night to preserve pristine quality. De-stemming and direct pressing follows (2-3 hours) with the wine being fermented at low temperatures to preserve color and aromatics.
Nestled in the heart of Provence and within the region’s only volcano, Trevaresse, the estate lies just a few miles away from Aix-en-Provence and sits at a high altitude of 1,200 feet. With 432 acres of vines, Château Beaulieu is the largest estate in AOP Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence. The volcanic site provides an incredible diversity of clay and limestone soils, this, coupled with the relatively inland location, lends to rosés that retain their vibrancy longer than is typical of the region.
Varietals: Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon
