The Winery

Located on the banks of the Garonne river, Château Beau Rivage is a small, organic winery with 8ha of vines. The meticulous selection of grape varieties, and the traditional methods used in cultivating the vines and in the vinification process, ensures that Château Beau Rivage consistently produces high quality wines that have nothing to envy of their more prestigious Médoc neighbours.

Château Beau Rivage is a serial award winner for their Bordeaux Supérieur and Haut-Médoc wines.  This year they are awarded a star in the Hachette 2015 wine guide for their Benjamin 2011 red wine. Delicate and complex aromas, and a seductive balance between fruit and tannins on the palate.

Château Beau Rivage produces red and rosé wines from the Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec vines that grow in the lime clay soil.

Region

The famous Bordeaux region is France’s largest, producing 25% of the country’s wine. Most of the wine made is red, but there are also some very good white wines to be found, especially the sweet wines of Sauternes. The climate is characterized by hot summers and relatively mild winters thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Macau-en Médoc, just 24 km / 14 miles from the centre of Bordeaux, is superbly placed. On the left bank of the Garonne river, it is found at the entrance to the Route des Châteaux, home to some of the world’s most reputed and expensive wine from Margaux, Cantenac and Pauillac.
