Château Beauferan White Wine
Recently purchased by the Cheylan family, Château Beauferan is located on the nearby hills of Velaux. Abandoned for years, the Beauferan estate, its winery, its cellar, and its vineyard were ready to be recalled to life. Realizing the estate’s fabulous potential, Robert, Noële, Christine, and Pascal Cheylan purchased the abandoned estate in 2014 and began restoration of the vineyard immediately. After several years of work without a sufficient harvest, the estate now produces high quality grapes each year.
Until the renovation of the Château Beauferan cellar is complete, the grapes will continue to be vinified in the cellars of the Château Virant.
The objective of the Cheylan family is to restore this estate and return nobility to the name Château Beauferan.
The Château Beauferan White is one of the best wines the Cheylan family has to offer. Its characteristic grape varieties, Rolle and Ugni, give it buttery, vanilla notes while also presenting a refreshing acidity. This wine ferments in the ancestral 17th century cellar of Château Virant, giving it a slightly woody aroma. Served chilled, its powerful, complex palate will please the finest gourmets.
This wine is ideal with aperitifs, fish, seafood, vegetable dishes, and ripened French PDO cheeses. We also suggest trying it with foie gras-it promises to deliver a new flavor experience.
Château Beauferan White is a wine that should be tasted at 12℃. A chilled temperature is required to preserve the taste qualities specific to this wine.
Château Virant has an HVE 3 certification issued by the French government. This distinguished label is only obtained after having reached the highest level of environmental certification for farms. This label signifies sustainable production and practices with careful management of natural resources.
The Château Beauferan White regularly wins medals in the Aix-en-Provence competition. In 2017, this wine was awarded the Golden Crown, and in 2016 and 2019, it won the Silver Crown.
The Aix-en-Provence competition recognizes the best wines of the Aix-en-Provence PDO category. It is a competition of producers whose wines are judged by the professionals in the industry. Winning in this category identifies our Château Beauferan white wine as one of the most highly awarded white wines in the region.
Our Château Beauferan White also won a gold medal at the Vinalies Nationales competition in 2020.
The jury for the Vinalies Nationales competition is composed of oenologists who judge both the quality and typicity of the wines submitted for tasting. Winning a prize in this prestigious professional competition indicates Château Virant as a recognized top wine producer in the industry.
