Chateau Roubine ‘Lion et Dragon’ Organic Cotes de Provence Cru Classe RoseRM220.0 ‘Lion et Dragon’ is among the great Rose 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. Harvested by hand early in the morning and placed in crates, the grapes are then kept in a cold room for 24 hours. The berries then pass on the sorting table and are sent to the press. The cold pellicular maceration, long for a rose, makes it possible to extract the aromas and the typicality of the grape varieties as much as possible, without taking on colour. The juice thus obtained is decanted at low temperature then sung in thermally controlled barrels and ‘Foudres’ (large oak casks), where natural fermentation then begins thanks to their native yeasts. The aging lasts about 6 months. This ambitious rose offers us a precise and intense aromatic expression. It reveals pretty floral notes embellished with red fruits (blackcurrant bud) and citrus fruits (mandarin). On the palate it is a dry wine with a fresh and fruity attack. Pretty gourmet finish that calls for a cuisine full of finesse and sunshine This Gastronomic wine can very well be drunk as an aperitif with tapas or it will perfectly accompany braised poultry.

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 Classé” of the Côtes 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.
