Château Beaubois 90 Point Organic Rhone Wines
Château Beaubois has recently received multiple accolades for their Cuvée Expression wines, making the line from Costieres de Nimes AOC 90 point organic Rhone wines.
The three Cuvée Expression 90 point Organic Rhone wines come from Château Beaubois in the far southern Rhone AOC Costières de Nimes. Château Beaubois covers a total of 60 hectares in this region of the Southern Rhone Valley. Sister and brother Fanny and François Boyer are the 4th generation of their family owning the vineyard. They bring out the best of their unique terroir, producing wines of pure freshness, elegance and depth. Bordering the marshy Camargue plane and influenced by the nearby Cevennes mountain rage, nature plays a key role in wine production and style.
All three Cuvée Expression Wines are made using only indigenous, natural yeast. Since becoming certified organic in 2009, overall biodiversity in the vineyard has been enhanced at Château Beaubois. This allowed them to stop adding organic yeasts to their red wines three years ago. Their winemaking process is as natural as possible, with minimal interventions, allowing the terroir to fully express itself. With this goal fully achieved with their red wines, last year they also went to utilizing only indigenous yeasts in their white and rosé production. Their main priority at Château Beaubois has always been to pay the utmost attention to the quality of the grapes and to develop a natural and intuitive vinification. Their transition to Biodynamic production is the final step toward achieving that goal.
2020 Cuvée Expression White – International Organic Wine Award 92 Points. This Demeter Certified Biodynamic wine with a delightful blend of Roussanne, Grenache, Viognier, and Rolle (Vermentino). Aromas and flavors abound with lemon, white blossom, nectarine and melon, with a slight hint of salinity at the end, indicative of the vineyard’s proximity to the sea. “Our situation which is very close to the beach brings great freshness and lots of iodine to the wines,” winemaker Fanny Boyer. Perfect with fish, shellfish, vegetables and a variety of cheese.
2020 Cuvée Expression Rosé – Wine Enthusiast 90 Points. This Demeter Certified Biodynamic wine is a delicious blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault.

Wine of pleasure…very expressive, it offers a palette of aromas and reflects the character of a Mediterranean terroir,” winemaker Fanny Boyer.
2019 Cuvée Expression Rouge – International Organic Wine Award 90 Points. This wine blends Syrah, Grenache and Marselan for a delicious and versatile red.

A tasty and supple wine which can be served throughout the meal,” Fanny Boyer
