The Léoube Rosé is produced at Château Léoube which is nestled in a coastal bay in a national park a stone’s throw from St Tropez. The Château Léoube estate is one of the most beautifully protected sites in Europe. Lord and Lady Bamford first discovered the estate back in 1997. Seduced byChâteau Léoube’s beauty and history, which dates back to the 15th Century, they set out to nurture the vineyards back to their former glory and to create wines that celebrate the unique character of the terroir. Today, the Léoube estate includes 65 hectares of vineyards and 20 hectares of olive groves, all spread across 4 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline.
A mixture of schist and clay characterize 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. A particular situation that contributes to making wine out of common. To obtain a perfect sorting, harvesting is manual only. The grapes are transported directly to the winery where they are placed immediately in temperature controlled vats.
The Léoube Rosé is very much a rosé of elegance rather than power, a wine that grows with confidence as each mouthful is tasted. The delicate aromas reveal sents of honey and soft red fruits, both of which emerge as the wine warms the mouth. There is an unmistakable scent of mint, evoking the herbs that grow wild around the vineyards. This is a very complete wine, notable for its harmony, freshness and sheer drinkability.
