Roubine ‘La Vie en Rose’ Organic Cotes de Provence Rose (Magnum – 1,500ml)
“La Vie en Rose’ comes from a selection of organically-grown plots cultivated in the heart of the Cotes de Provence. Thanks to the night harvest, this cuvee benefits from a pellicular maceration at low temperature for a few hours in order to reveal all the aromas and finesse of this refined wine.
Bright salmon pink in colour, with on the nose fresh cherries, strawberries, and peaches with subtle hints of minerals. Light in body, with fruity notes of ripe red berries and stone fruit, hints of stoney minerals on the mid-palate and perfect, medium-plus acid structure. A ripe, ample, and balanced mouthfeel of great delicacy. Pure and tasty with a fine bitterness on the finish. This lovely organic rose will go wonderfully with sea bream ceviche or black olive bread.
A pleasureful, festive wine, to be enjoyed as an aperitif or around a light and summer meal with beautiful Mediterranean fish, light salads, or a varieties of BBQ dishes.

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. 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.
