Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its coral color announces a nose of red fruits, currant and grenade. The palate is balanced, full and nervous. The finish is tight and coated with a hint of sea.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
The roots of the Beyrac family goes back to the 3rd Crusade. Bertrand de Beyrac would have sent to Jerusalem three barrels of his “costes” (coast) to the crusaders.

- Terroir: Spread across 2000 hectares, the Buzet appellation benefits from favorable weather and geological conditions. The vineyards lay on soils that are made of clay, gravels and silt. Some vines culminate at 150 meters.
- Viticulture: Mindful of the importance to lead environmental-friendly practices, all the winegrowers carry the Agri Confiance label thanks to ethical and sustainable practices with as an example the prohibition of fertilizers.
- Vinification: Environmental-friendly practices are also led in the vat room and cellar with the installation of photovoltaic panels, the shrinkage of water consumption and the implementation of new winemaking methods that exclude the use of sulfite.
