VINEYARD
The vineyards are located on the southern slopes of a large plateau surrounding the ancient fire tower and are around 10-40 years old.

The soil is a combination of sandstone, chalk and clay, with a high pebble content characteristic of the area. The sandstone prevents evaporation of water during the hot summer days, keeping the soils fresh and infusing the resulting wines with a minerality typical of the region.

The Rhône river, only a few miles away, brings much needed water to the vineyards and the Mistral wind ensures the grapes develop in a dry, mould-free, environment.

GRAPE VARIETIES
50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan, 10% Marselan

VINIFICATION
After machine picking in early September, the grapes were vinified separately by parcel.

The final blend was made in February, and the resulting wine aged for 12 months, with 95% in concrete tank and 5% in French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTE
The Château La Tour de Beraud - Costières de Nîmes 2012 is ruby red in colour, with intense aromas of black fruit and a touch of spice. On the palate, it is full and silky with distinctive tannins and subtle aromas of violets, liquorice and ripe fruit. Tour de Béraud is a blend of Grenache and Marselan, which provide fruitiness and roundness, Carignan, giving the wine more fruitiness and Syrah, adding colour, finesse and a full-bodied flavour.
