CHATEAU DE BEAULON
A wonderful 15th and 16th century chateau is home to this small producer of estate cognac and Pineau des Charentes. While tiny by industry standards, the estate covers ninety hectares, more than enough to supply their own needs. They remain the only producer of cognac and pineau in the Charente using exclusively estate grown fruit.
The property sits on the right bank of the Gironde, opposite the northern Medoc. The Thomas family pride themselves on retaining the same grape varieties as grown in the 16th century: Folle Blanche, Colombard and Montils for Cognac ; Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc for white Pineau ; Cabernets Franc/Sauvignon and Merlots for red Pineau. The use of the noble Bordeaux grapes (as opposed to Ugni Blanc etc.) for Pineau means there is no added sugar used. Of course the cognac for the pineau is the estate’s very own.
Both the cognacs and Pineaus show a remarkable refinement and delicacy.
