Bormes-les-Mimosas, Côtes de Provence, France (Certified Organic + Bio-Dynamic)
The beautiful vineyards of Chateau Léoube borders the prestigious Domain Ott, so wine maker Romain Ott didn’t have far to travel from his family’s estate. Romain Ott is the head wine maker at Chateau Léoube and his deft touch whilst crafting these wines really is second to none.
Dry windy hills, gleaming orchards and lavender scented olive groves surround Chateau Léoube. Gentle artisan viticulture and environmentally sensitive practices work perfectly alongside a winery that uses the latest technology.
Old Mouvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah vines grow in the most hallowed of rich soils. The vineyards nestle into the valley, protected from the Mistral wind, overlook the salty, shimmering Mediterranean ocean. This special Rosé is, unfortunately, limited in quantity. It is, I feel, the very benchmark of the finest Provencal Rose’s – light, fragrant and creamy, delicate, herb scented and pure.
The White Vermentino & the red Grenache based are not to be overlooked. They are also beauties, full of Provencal warmth character & style.
