Presentation of the vineyard
Domaine Sainte Eulalie is located just north of Hyères on the French riviera, at the foot of the Maures mountain massif. The vineyard, which was initially planned to become a golf course, was taken over by Jean-Louis de David-Beauregard after finishing his wine studies in Hyères. Jean-Louis planted 11.5 hectares only in 2000 and then another 5.5 hectares in 2002 to increase the production to 17 hectares under the Côtes-de-Provence appellation. The winery cultivates the for Provence very typical Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre varieties. The agriculture is organically conducted with ambition to intervene as little as possible to the natural process. Only natural yeast is used and the wine tanks are small to easily process the various grape varieties as well as the mixture of the final wine. 60% of the production is red wine and the rest is rosé.
A light pink color with copper hues. The nose is fruity and aromatic, slightly peppery. The palate is complex and generous with elements of exotic fruits - mango and melon - fruity with light sweetness in the finale. An elegant rosé wine to serve to Mediterranean cuisine or to Asian dishes.
