Taste exceptional wines in Provence
OUR MAIN GRAPE VARIETIES:
Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (for red wines)
Sauvignon, Rolle (or Vermentino) and Semillon (white wines)
Picked at phenolic ripeness, the harvest is done by hand and transported in small 10-kilo boxes. The same parcel may be visited more than once to ensure only grapes of optimal ripeness are taken from the vine.
At the cellars, the harvested fruit is destemmed (for the reds), sorted and poured into vats by 150-kilo wagons to preserve the quality of the fruit and avoid crushing caused by pumping.
The vats are small in capacity to separate the various batches and grape varieties produced on the vineyard. Tasting is practised every day during the fermentation and maceration processes to determine how to extract the good compounds from the grapes.
The wines are then aged in barrels. The time taken always factors in the specific qualities of the variety, the addition of wood only ever producing a more complex wine with no additional
Wines produced co-jointly with Stéphane Derenoncourt.
These are complex, racy wines with plenty of freshness and breadth on the palate segueing into a slightly saline minerality.
The qualities we aim for in our wines are harmony, finesse and elegance.
These wines have aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruits combined with cumin and fennel.
Ample and generous, the fine phenolic structure gives the wine its roundness.
This wine is mainly composed of Syrah (about 70%) blended with Cabernet Sauvignon (about 30%).
The freshness of the fruit is our priority. Only firm and well-ripened bunches, gently placed in 10-kilo boxes to prevent the berries splitting and oxidising, are picked.
Villa Baulieu Cuvée Bérengère Red is a delicious wine bursting with flavours of ripe red fruits, fresh peppercorns, juniper berries and chocolate drops.
The smooth and well-designed palate has a burst of energy on the finish which is wonderfully appealing.
Le second vin: Baulieu
To preserve its natural freshness and liveliness, the malolactic fermentation is stopped.
The wine is then aged in the very same barrels for four months.
This white wine, in the lineage of our savoir-faire, is an excellent way in to the wines of Baulieu.
The red Baulieu is a powerful wine of great aromatic finesse with notes of black fruits and spices.
