Château Léoube Rosé 2018, A.O.C Cote de Provence
Château Léoube are producers of arguably the finest Provence wines money can buy. Their range is as beautiful as the vineyards that produce them. Situated on schist and clay soils right on the Mediterranean coast, this is the ideal terroir for the production of ripe and healthy grapes. The vineyards are certified organic and produce a range of wines which are delicious and individual.
Hand harvesting, gentle extraction and astute wine-making have resulted in a wine of stunning clarity, with a beautifully complex nose. After a light swirl the wine reveals notes of watermelon, mint, dried herbs, gentle mineral notes and red berries. The palate is harmonious and complete with perfectly weighed acidity and layers of fruit. The purity and elegance on the finish leaves you wanting more!
