Château Beaulieu, `Cuvée Alexandre` Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé

France, Provence

This rosé is brilliantly clear salmon pink in colour. On the nose, it is intense with redcurrant and wild strawberry notes that develop into juicy white peach and pear notes. On the palate, fresh acidity is balanced beautifully with the alcohol, giving an elegant mouthfeel and refreshing length.”

Origin

Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence lies west along the Mediterranean coast from the Côtes de Provence appellation. The sunny, dry Mediterranean climate ensures ripe, fruit-driven wines. The sea breezes moderate the hot, drying influence of the Mistral, which blows from the north; this means that the vines are not stressed, the balance is better and the wine retains freshness and aroma alongside the fruit.

Grape Variety

42% Grenache/Garnacha , 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Syrah/Shiraz, 6% Cinsault , 4% Vermentino, 2% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Semillon

The grapes were pressed and fermented in the same way as a white wine (rather than using the 'saignée' method of drawing off part of a red wine early in the fermentation). This minimised the extraction of harsh phenolics, and has led to a more delicate style of rosé with a fine textured finish.

Producer

The Cuvée Alexandre is a delicious and modestly priced Provence rosé from Château Beaulieu, located in Rognes in Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence. The estate comprises 180 hectares of vines which lie at an altitude of 400 metres, in the heart of an ancient volcanic crater. The vineyard land has been farmed in the area since Roman times, although the Château itself was built as a stronghold for the French King Henry III in 1576. Today, the estate is run by the Jeanjean family, who co-own Mas La Chevalière (in the South of France) and Domaine Laroche (Chablis) with Michel Laroche.
