The Chateau was built by the “de Vinsons” family in 1480 during the reign of King Louis XIV. At the dawn of the renaissance period Beaulon’s architectural style was still flamboyantly gothic.

 

The vineyards of the château cover some 90 hectares.  A deliberate and judicious choice of 9 grape varieties set the Château de Beaulon vineyards apart. Contrary to modern trends, Beaulon has remained faithful to the region’s traditional 16th century vine stocks : Folle Blanche, Colombard and Montils for  its Cognac.

 

The fertiliser used on the land is natural and organically based.

 

The  Beaulon X.O. (Extra Old) is a stunning 12 year old Cognac – the minimum ageing requirement for an X.O. is 6 years.

 

Golden, almost orange in appearance.

 

The nose has hints of bread, almond, gorse and wild peach, cinnamon, racy and complex.

 

The palate is fruity, very rich,  fresh with a very long aftertaste.
