Chateau Leoube Rose de Leoube
- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: The Léoube estate was bought by the current owners in 1997. Seduced by this chateau in provence, the Léoube’s history and beauty, they set out to make wines with character that were true to their terroir, while remaining respectful of nature.
As the founders of Daylesford Organic – one of the UK’s most sustainable farms – the owners are passionate about environmentally friendly farming and wished to bring this natural approach to Léoube.
Following a back-to-basics philosophy, we believe in strengthening the land’s biodiversity and natural defenses by employing traditional growing methods and using only natural, non-toxic treatments. As such, our grapes and olives are all harvested by hand, in tune with the seasonal and lunar cycles.
WINEMAKING: Hand-harvested grapes pre-sorted in the vineyard and transported direct to press. Lightly whole bunch pressed. Natural indigenous yeast for cool fermentation in thermo-regulated stainless-steel tanks. Full malolactic conversion. Rests on fine lees for 6 months
TASTING NOTES: There is an unmistakable scent of mint, evoking the herbs that grow wild around the vineyards. Even the nearby sea seems to have left its mark in the appetising, lightly salty finish. This is a very complete rose wine, notable for its harmony, freshness and sheer drinkability. Assured, understated and refined, a highly accomplished Provence rosé wine.
