In 1854, the Double family acquired the Château de Beaupré, near Aix-en-Provence. They first used it as a midpoint area for changing horses half way between their other properties in Marseille and the Luberon. In 1890, Baron Emile Double planted the very first vines around the Château and was soon transporting his wines on horse to wholesalers in Marseille. Three generations later Maxime Double and Phanette Double still run the estate with the same passion.
Planted on clay and limestone soils, the vines are grown on hills at an altitude of 1,148 feet with an East-West sun exposure.
Harvests occur at optimal maturity, for a better balance and greater concentration. Grapes are then quickly pressed and fermented at low temperatures to preserve their aromas and freshness. After cold settling at 10°C, a withdrawal is made to ferment the juice at a temperature regulated of 15°C to 18°C.
This rosé wine combines roundness and freshness. With notes of wild strawberries, mountain herbs and nice minerality. Beaupré is dry with excellent intensity of flavor, a good body and balance. It is fresh, crisp and delightful!
A perfect aperitif with row fish, carpaccio, pizzas, pastas, seafood, salads. Ideal for summer meals or just by itself!
