Château Beaulieu estate is steeped in history. It’s vineyards have been farmed since Roman times and the Château was built in 1576 as a stronghold for King Henry III of France. The sunny, dry climate here ensures fully ripe grapes, while Mediterranean sea breezes moderate the hot, drying influence of the Mistral wind and lend the wines a delicate freshness.The ‘Cuvée Alexandre’ Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence Rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is vinified in the same way as a white wine (rather than by the 'saignée' method of drawing off part of a red wine early in its fermentation) to minimise the extraction of harsh phenolics. It is very pale in colour with fresh wild strawberry and redcurrant aromas and notes of juicy white peach and pear. Rounded on the mid-palate, it has great levels of natural acidity that give the wine a crisp and refreshing finish.
