The freshness and balance of a Côtes de Provence rosé wine
Château Sainte Roseline is a place steeped in history. In Provence, it boasts a wonderful location thirty minutes from the bay of Saint-Tropez and the Croisette in Cannes, the Gorges du Verdon and Aix-en-Provence. It is on this thousand-year-old terroir that these wines, in Cru Classé Côtes de Provence, blossom harmoniously. In 1994, Bernard Teillaud took over this beautiful property with the view to make its a gem in France’s southern winegrowing region. In 2007, his daughter Aurélie Bertin Teillaud took over from her father to work towards a different and authentic personality for each of the estate's wines.
Established on clay-limestone soils, the 110-hectare vineyard of Château Sainte Roseline produces great Côtes de Provence wines. It benefits from a deep spring which allows the vines to be watered regularly. The 11 grape varieties cultivated in the vineyard have enjoyed the Cru Classé distinction since 1995. The vineyard is managed according to the principles of sustainable viticulture.
Produced since 1950, Cuvée Lampe de Méduse from Château Sainte Roseline has become the emblematic and historic wine of the estate. Representing the core production of the estate's wines, it is recognisable by its bottle with its unique shape, the fruit of the reflection of the Baroness de Rasque de Laval, wife of the estate's former owner.
Winemaking and ageing
The grapes were harvested at night, carefully sorted and destemmed, then transferred to stainless steel tanks by gravity to preserve the quintessence of the harvest. The musts were put in stabulation for 5 to 10 days before settling. The clear juices were then subjected to a temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation lasting 10 to 14 days. The wine was then aged on its lees in vats and stirred.
