2013 Chateau Leoube rose for the summer

Jun 25, 14 2013 Chateau Leoube rose for the summer

I received this lovely rosé not long ago from Château Léoube and as it’s definitely rosé weather, this one is a charmer. I’ve had this rosé in the past and it seems to be getting better every year.

Rose de Leoube

Château Léoube is located in Provence and they make a classic Provençal rose. The domain has a variety of soils and is close to the sea. They grow grenache, cinsault, syrah mourvedre and cabernet sauvignon. The 2013 rosé is pale pink in colour and crystal clear, it has a very fresh nose of wild strawberries and red berries followed by a surprisingly fresh and fruity palate. This is a quality wine with depth of flavour and a long finish that I was not expecting from what is usually referred to as ‘light and lively’ wines.

I really enjoyed this wine just sitting outside in my garden but it would also be good with grilled vegetables, BBQ chicken or even something a bit spicier.

The 2013 Château Léoube rosé is available in the UK at Daylesford, Bibendum Wine and Goedhuis & Co. Suggested RRP £14.99
