"A blend of 40% Cinsault, 20% each Grenache and Mourvèdre and 10% each Rolle and Tibouren, the 2019 Cotes de Provence Rose Lampe de Meduse is a pale, copper-tinged rosé. Scents of passion fruit, strawberries and grapefruit emerge on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is plump and generous, then ends mellow and easy."
Chateau Sainte-Roseline was founded in the 11th Century by an hermit named Roubaud who loved the calm and peaceful scenery of the surrounding natural springs. Under the Pope Jean XXII (1244 - 1334) - more well-known from wine lovers for his role with the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation - some of the first vineyards were planted in this unique terroir. In 1955, Chateau Sainte-Roseline received the "Cru Classé" designation. Since 2007, Aurelie Bertin took over the destiny of this great property into her hands, with the aim of making it one of the jewels of southern winemaking. She started modernizing it further and bringing it to new higher levels, steering it towards some sustainable and now organic approach (In organic conversion).
In the vineyard, a strong emphasis is placed on quality over quantity, healthy lively soils, working with sustainable methods, and now converting completely to Organic (Now in Year 2 of certification).
Chateau Sainte-Roseline produces some true terroir-driven wines, that drink well above their price point, and Lampe de Meduse 2019, their flagship is a perfect representation!
