  • Winemaker Notes Chateau La Tour de Beraud is named after the old fire tower on the property that dates back to the XIV century. The tower, which is now surrounded by old vineyards of Carignan, was originally built to help prevent invasions from the Mediterranean Sea.
  • Tasting Notes Light yellow with golden tints, Its flavors are equally juicy (yellow plum) and floral (honeysuckle) with a mineral finish (charcoal). It develops lively mineral notes in mouth along with litchi, rose and grapefruit flavors. With its bouquet of white blossoms and citrus fruits, this wine makes for an excellent aperitif. Best served at 9° with seafood and fish. A perfect companion to red mullet with olive oil.
  • Vineyard Château La Tour de Béraud is a property stretching over 30 acres, located in the southern part of the Rhône Valley in AOP Costières-de-Nîmes. The vineyards are situated only a few miles from the Rhone River. The result is an exceptional terroir composed of flat, rounded stones (“galets”) on clay and limestone, enabling the vines to draw nutrients and moisture for the depths of the soil. The galets protect the soil from evaporation and also add a touch of minerality and freshness to the wines. Vine age ranges from 5 - 20 years.
  • Vinification Vinified entirely in stainless steel to preserve all the natural fruit and freshness, at temperatures of 14 to 16°C. This rises to 18°C towards the end of the fermentation which, combined with four months of ageing on the lees, has contributed excellent complexity and depth, without compromising the freshness. The wine is unoaked, and did not undergo malo-lactic fermentation.
