Presentation of the vineyard
Château de Beaupré is located in St Cannat just north of the town of Aix-en-Provence in southern France. The beautiful, very typical Provençal main building was erected already in 1739. The property is owned by the Double family who bought the property already in 1854 and it is now the 4th generation that produces the wine. The Double family is originally a shipowner family from Marseille and Château Beaupré was used in the 19th century as a resting place when the family went from Marseille to their second estate in Luberon with horse and cart. Today, red, white and rosé wines are produced. The wines are organically grown and Château Beaupré is today official supplier to the French Presidential Elysee Palace, where the wines are served at receptions.
A ruby ??red beautiful color. The nose has aromas of red berries with some spicy notes. The palate is medium-bodied, not light but also not powerful and concentrated. Some tones of red berries with some spicy notes. Good balance between acidity and roundness - discreet tannins. A very good all-round wine to serve for all occasions; grilled meat, a quiche lorraine or with the cheese tray!
