Q Home Chateau Sainte Roseline

Wine Chateau st Roseline: 

A beautiful chateau, which is definitely worth a visit. With 700 years of history in wine production, Château Sainte Roseline is one of the most outstanding in Provence. In 1955 Château Sainte Roseline was awarded the designation "CRU CLASSE." The clayey limestone soil and the underground water source are great for the vines and create a controlled feeding of the vineyards, all necessary for a fine wine. Château Sainte Roseline has108 hectares of vineyards, where eleven different grape varieties are grown: 

For red wine: Syrah, Mourvedre and Cabernet Sauvignon. 
For rosé: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Tibouren.
For white wine: Rolle and Semillon and Clairette 

http://www.sainte-roseline.com/

Q Home- st roseline fles rose

Rosé: La Chapelle Sainte Roseline Cru Rose, Mourvèdre , Grenache and Rolle. The grapes are gently pressed with pneumatic vacuum presses to avoid extraction of tannins and oxidation. Temperatures are monitored during the fermentation process in order to allow the right development. 

White: La Chapelle Sainte Roseline Cru Blanc, Rolle. Like the rosé these grapes are gently pressed and the temperatures are monitored as for the rosé. 

Red: La Chapelle Sainte Roseline Cru Rouge, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The fermentation takes place in wooden casks with cold maceration at room temperature for five days. Barrel fermentation is continued for a month, where daily pig ages (??? – what???) provide a controlled extraction of tannin's, which create concentration and finesse. The maturation process lasts twelve months and takes place in new barrels.

Wine chateau Domaine des Sauronnes: 

This chateau could surprise you with its simplicity. The owner, Bouisson Michel, and his two sons, Christopher and Sylvain, have a great understanding and love for wine. This is reflected in each harvest.

A small domain with a great reputation. In 1991, Patricia Ortelli fell in love with a small estate winery located in Pontevès in the Haut Var. Before she acquired the chateau, she had never made wine before, but after more than 20 years, she has developed this little domaine into a very good winery with its own beautiful character.
