Tasting Notes: This wine has a light pink color with silvery reflections. The bouquet features notes of stone fruits, pineapple, and tangy red fruits such as redcurrant. The palate is delicate and lively; this wine is juicy with a long and fresh finish.

Notes: Château 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.

Food pairing: Equally appreciated as an aperitif or throughout a meal, it expresses itself best at 9. Perfect with grilled fish or a green salad, this wine will also pair very well with Asian cuisine or bittersweet recipes!

The Domain: Château La Tour de Beraud 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.

The vineyards are planted on terraced slopes, with clay and pebble soils which were deposited in the area as glaciers moved through the continent during the Quaternary period.

This specific terroir gives freshness and balance to the wines whilst the sunny climate of the Rhone ripens the grapes to perfection. Traditional ageing in tanks preserves the natural fruitiness and fine, pure length.
