Château Beaulieu Cuvée Alexandre

Provence

Beautiful lychee in color, the nose expresses delicate white flowers while the palate is elegant and fresh with light hints of papaya.  This is a beautifully balanced wine with a subtle finish.

Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon

The vineyard is composed of 140 hectares of the following grape varieties: Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault for the rosé and red wines and Cabernet-Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Rolle and Sémillon for the white wines. Aside from the vines dedicated to the rosé production and 8 ha dedicated to Villa Baulieu wines, other crops grow on this land: almond trees, truffle oaks and agroforestery. The location faces the renowned Provencal region of the Lubéron, overlooks the Durance valley, and the Roque d'Anthéron, and offers a perfectly diversified ”terroir” well-suited to vine growing.

A beautiful raspberry color robe. Nose of red fruits (strawberry, red currant), with fragrances  of flowers. The palate is well-balanced and fresh, with a nice acidity supported by the flavors of  strawberry and guava. This rosé has a beautiful presence, between freshness and aromas.

    Wine Advocate, May 2020

    "The 2019 Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rose Cuvée Alexandre is quite austere, giving up little more than struck flint on the nose, and following that with lemon and grapefruit flavors. It's light to medium-bodied, focused and crisp, still flinty and ungenerous on the finish. Fans of so-called minerally wines—the winery says this reflects the volcanic terroir—will enjoy this more than I did."

    "Cantaloupe and peach flavors are interwoven with jicama, heather and mineral notes in this charming rosé, with white tea and herb details gliding into the finish. Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Rolle and Sémillon. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 2,200 cases imported"

    "Grenache and Cinsault dominate this wine. Rich structure comes from the intense acidity, light tannin edge and full, red-fruit flavors. Still young, the wine will be better from late 2020"
