Winemaker Notes

The complexity of this blend of three Provencal varietals (Cinsault, Grenache, and Mourvedre) makes it a real pleasure to drink, fine and delicate. Ideal as an aperitif.

Wine & Spirits
A blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Carignan, this is dense and chewy, redolent with the scent of the forests that surround the vineyards in this part of the Vay. The combination of rich fruit and cool herbal notes strike a balance that would work well with cod in a black olive sauce.

Chateau Roubine, Cotes de Provence, Provence, France
Image of winery
Located right in the middle of Provence, between Lorgues and Draguignan, Chateau Roubine is one of the oldest wine estates of France. Famous ever since the 14th century, the Templars yielded the property to the Saint James of Jerusalem Order in 1307. Its strategic position on the Roman road "Julienne" and its particular beauty attracted many visitors throughout the years. In 1953, the Ministry of Agriculture awarded the property with the "Cru Classe" title, a prestigious vintage wines award.

The history of our vineyard is drawn in the blazon of the Templars: first the Dragon, symbol of Draguignan town, then the Lion representing Lorgues, protected by the sunbeams of Provence. The owner Mrs Rousselle and her team know how to use the best of Nature to produce top-of-the-range wines with a worldwide reputation.

Cotes de Provence

View all wine

Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provence appellations and extending all the way east to the border of Italy. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a warm Mediterranean wine-producing region.

Here there is a new focus on quality rosé, as it defines four fifths of the region’s wines. Following in the rosé footsteps, a lot of new effort is going into the region’s red production. A new generation has turned its focus on high quality Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. Cotes de Provence white wines, which represent a miniscule part of the region as far as volume, are nonetheless worthy of consideration and can include any combination of Clairette, Semillon, Ugni Blanc and Vermentino.

Rosé Wine

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
