A rich and complex rosé wine from Provence

The estate

Château Sainte Roseline is a place steeped in history. In Provence, it is ideally located thirty minutes away from the bay of Saint-Tropez and the Croisette in Cannes, the Verdon Gorge and Aix-en-Provence. These wines flourish harmoniously on this thousand-year-old Côtes de Provence Cru Classés terroir. In 1994, Bernard Teillaud took over this beautiful estate with the ambition of making it one of the gems of southern viticulture. In 2007, his daughter Aurélie Bertin Teillaud took over from her father in order to work towards a different and authentic identity for each of the estate's wines.

The vineyard

Established on clay-limestone soils, Château Sainte Roseline’s 110-hectare vineyard produces fine Côtes de Provence wines. It enjoys a deep spring which allows the vines to be irrigated in a controlled manner. The 11 grape varieties cultivated in the vineyard bear the Cru Classé classification since 1995. The vineyard is managed according to sustainable viticultural practices.

The wine

Produced since 1950, the Cuvée Lampe de Méduse by Château Sainte Roseline has become the estate’s iconic and historic wine. Showcasing the heart of the estate’s wine production, this cuvée is recognisable by its uniquely-shaped bottle, Baroness de Rasque de Laval’s idea, the wife of the estate's former owner.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested at night, carefully sorted and destemmed, then transferred to stainless steel tanks by gravity-flow to preserve the quintessence of the harvest. The musts are put in stabulation for 5 to 10 days before settling. The clear juices then undergo a temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation that lasts between 10 to 14 days. The wine is aged on its lees in vats, with stirring of the lees.
