Château de Beaulon
Built in 1480 by the de Vinsons family, the Chateau became the property of the “de Beaulon” family in 1510 and their name remains today.
In the XVII century, the heir of Beaulon His Grace de Nesmond, bishop of Bayeux and Advisor to King Louis XIV placed the Chateau in the management of the Bishops of Bordeaux. They were to have a determining influence on the vineyards.
As amateurs of Sauternes wines they decided to produce the same richness and quality from their very own vineyards, as a result Semillon and Sauvignon grape varieties were added to the vineyards and then Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon completed the Medoc influence. This Bordeaux trend has proved essential to the production of Beaulon Pineau des Charentes, over the centuries it has become the hallmark of elegance which distinguishes Beaulon Pineau from its competitors.
In 1965 Christian Thomas acquired the Chateau and it continues as a family business today. He undertook the extension of the vineyards.
Chateau de Beaulon Cognac and Pineau des Charentes, under the firm passionate control of Christian Thomas for more than forty years, have become synonymous with exceptional quality, be it at home or abroad.
The Cognac and Pineau are produced from a single vineyard , unique in the Charente region and registered in the cadastral register under the Beaulon estate, as such guaranteeing the authenticity of the chateau.
Contrary to modern trends, Beaulon has remained faithful to the region’s traditional 16th century vine stocks : Folle Blanche, Colombard and Montils .
Distillation on light lees in small copper pot stills.
Very long ageing in Limousin or Tronçais oak barrels, generally two to three times longer than legally required and … even longer for the rarer quality products. All over its estate, Cognac Chateau de Beaulon has a balanced approach to wine growing in the best spirit of sustainable development.
