Beynat has a clear, attractive not over extracted mid red colour. The nose is clearly printed by saline notes from limestone, and the palate offers a delicious raspberry fruit, with a little spice and hint of cinnamon.
This wine comes from 25 year old vines in the west of the appellation on the south facing limestone-clay hillsides of St Magne de Castillon. Organically certified and vinified with indigenous yeasts, this wine has been aged in cement for 15 months
The 100-years-old Chateau Beynat estate lies on the slopes of Saint-Magne de Castillon. We bought it 10 years ago, and turned it into an organic, biodynamic estate, enabling meaningful expression of our terroir in our wines. On our 17 hectares (42 acres) we offer a tasting tour with 10 sulphite-free wines in jars, amphorae, casks or simply tanks. Our wines are often cited in Paris and Bordeaux competitions, in the Hachette Guide and Revue du Vins de France.
