Chateau Roubine ‘Lion et Dragon’ Organic Cotes de Provence Cru Classe Red

RM220.0

‘Lion et Dragon’ Red is among the greatest wines of Provence, a small batch production of hand-selected organically-grown grapes from the estate best parcels, aged in oak barrels. The Lion and Dragon, present on the estate coat of arms, derived from the Knights Templar history of the area: the dragon, emblem of the city of Draguignan, and the Lion representing the town of Lorgues – both placed under the protection of the Provence Sun.

The harvest is done by hand and the vinification is done by separate grape variety from the oldest plots of the estate. After destemming and crushing, a long vatting period of more than 1 month gives this wine all its structure and structure, and extracts its intense garnet colour. After natural fermentation thanks to indigenous yeasts, the wines are aged for 24 months in oak barrels to be then blended in vats and bottled.

Bright garnet colour with ruby reflections. The nose is very complex. It releases notes of cherry and black pepper. We feel these southern notes of garrigue and black olive as well as a discreet touch of vanilla. It is an expressive wine dominated by ripe fruit and spices (roasted mocha, blueberry and wild blackberry). Good aging potential with a more promising development.

The quintessence of the great terroirs of Provence. Le Lion et Dragon rouge will go perfectly with game such as hare stew à la royale or veal cheek casserole with asparagus.

Description

Dating back to the 14th century, Chateau Roubine was owned by the Order of the Knights of Templars before being ceded to the order of Saint John of Jerusalem. In the 15th century, Chateau Roubine became the prerogative and pride of various great Provencal families. The ancient Roman road known as Julienne ran through this place and crossed the current vineyards, giving the Chateau a unique placement. The Property was fragmented as a result of the revolution in 1789. The estate was owned by the Allaman family in the 1800s, who sold it to Anne Leclerc de Juigne de Lassigny in 1855. Chateau Roubine was inherited by Henri de Rohan Chabot, who rented it to the Ott family in 1923. It finally gained a stable owner in 1994 after Valérie Rousselle purchased it, turning a new page in its history.

Chateau Roubine’s vineyard, bordered by a cirque of pines and oaks, is located in the heart of the Var between Verdon and the Mediterranean. It houses thirteen grape varieties and offers the conditions favoured to produce high-quality wines. “Roubine” in Provençal means stream, a credit to the east/west orientation of the land and the clay-limestone soil of the area.

In 1955, Chateau Roubine was one of the 23 wineries recognized by decree as “Cru Classe” of the Cotes de Provence. Today, the estate spans 130 hectares, including 72 hectares of vines, and excels through an optimal combination of advanced technology and strict adherence to sustainable agriculture rules.

The wine-making practices at the Chateau are designed to respect nature at every turn. This environmental approach, which is present at every stage of production, respects nature and its balance. Since 2017, Chateau Roubine has been certified as fully organic, and certified Biodynamic since 2020. Throughout the seasons a steady stream of visitors is present in the vineyards discovering the vines and the essential gestures and climatic contrasts that offer the qualities of a true terroir.
