Overview of the Wine
Produce the best from what the land can give you with great affection and care: This is the motto of the owners of Domaine de Leoube – one of the most beautiful protected sites in Europe and home to Chateau Leoube. Set in 560 hectares, the estate includes 65 hectares of vineyards and 20 hectares of olive groves, all devoted to growing the grapes and olives that make Leoube's award winning wines and olive oils.
The Leoube estate was bought by the current owners in 1997. Seduced by Leoube's history and beauty, they set out to make wines with character that were true to their terroir, while remaining respectful of nature. As the founders of Daylesford Organic – one of the UK's most sustainable farms – the owners are passionate about environmentally friendly farming and wished to bring this natural approach to Leoube.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Made from lower yields, it is delicately scented, cool and yet under laid with slightly more exotic aromas that betray its Provençal origins – herbs, fennel, a touch of aniseed. It is finely textured (Thanks to the Cabernet Sauvignon), persistent and warming, without being overtly alcoholic. Above all, there is a freshness, a hint of white pepper, which balances the fruit on the palate, ensuring a dry, mouthwatering finish.
Serve as an aperitif, or with tartare, fish, Mediterranean dishes, grilled meat, loin of lamb or veal chop.
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
A straightforward blend of Cinsault and Grenache gives the wine a ripe character. It is bright, yet harbors an underlying richness and a spicy touch.
