This rosé is a blend of 45% Grenache, 45% Cinsault, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The soils of this vineyard site are a mixture of schist and clay, classically characterizing Château Léoube soils. The proximity of the sea, the daily sea breeze and cool nights are all factors that provide an ideal climate for growing grapes. Vines are 20+ years old. To obtain a perfect sorting, harvesting is manual only. The grapes are transported directly to the winery where they are pressed directly. The juice extraction is slow and delicate. Fermentations, alcoholic and malolactic are made in stainless steel tanks. The bottling takes place in the spring after clarification.
Aromatically this wine has bright springtime scents of rose buds, strawberry lemonade, and a hint of brambly raspberries. On the palate the wine is bright and refreshing, with elevated acidity from just barely ripened fruit flavors and a touch of salty sea air. Exceptional with Provençal dishes, meaty white fish, steak tartare, grilled meats, lamb or veal chops.
