We say…..A sensational Rosé at a modest price!  A beautifully curvy bottle containing light, fresh wine – an all round winner!

Chateau Beaulieu Cuvée Alexandre Rosé wine from the Provence region of France is a very modestly priced beauty!  Chateau Beaulieu is located in Rognes in Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence and comprises 180 hectares of vines which lie at an altitude of 400 meters.  This vineyard land has been farmed since the Roman times and sits in the heart of an ancient volcanic crater.  Today the Estate is run by the Jeanjean family who co-own other noteable vineyards in France.

Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence lies west along the Mediterranean coast from the Cotes 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 and this better balance leads to the wines retaining their freshness and aroma alongside the fruit.

2019 was an excellent year for winemaking at Chateau Beaulieu.  A very hot and dry summer was kicked off by a heatwave in June which meant there was little disease pressure in the vineyards.  In the growing season the days saw high temperatures with cooler nights.  The harvest was started early to prevent the early-ripening varieties from over-ripening.  The grapes were very healthy with thick skins, intense colours and excellent aromatic purity.  The grapes for Chateau Beaulieu Cuvée Alexandre Rosé were harvested at night, cold direct pressed and fermented at a low temperature.  Fermentation took place in the same way as for a white wine which minimises the extraction of harsh phenolics and led to a more delicate style of rosé with a fine textured finish.

Chateau Beaulieu Cuvée Alexandre Rosé is presented in very stylish, bulbous bottles that are particularly striking to look at. The wine is brilliantly clear, has a very soft salmon pink colour and a lovely fresh acidity which is balanced beautifully with the alcohol.  This beautiful magnum of rosé wine, which is the equivalent of 2 standard sized bottles of wine, is superbly light, dry and crisp. The Chateau Beaulieu bottle is very stylish and particularly easy to pour despite it’s size.  A great value rosé for all occasions!
