Chateau Leoube - Le Secret de Leoube 2015

£25.95Price

A beautiful and well-kept “Secret” worth enjoying on a sunny day at any time of year. With an extra dose of Cabernet Sauvignon lending polished yet powerful tones, the colour is clear and bright while the nose offers powerful, mineral and spice-accented aromas of fresh red berries, blood orange, nectarine and potpourri, with a hint of fennel in the background. On the palate raspberry, bitter cherry and citrus pith flavours come through and a touch of honey adds very subtle sweetness. Silky and expansive on the finish, which emphatically repeats the nectarine and honey notes.

  • Region

    PROVENCE, FRANCE - Located in the far south-eastern corner of France, Provence is best known for the quality of its rosé wines and for its warm, mild climate. The vineyards cover an area of coastline that measures roughly 125 miles from east to west. In this definitively Mediterranean climate the vines enjoy around 3000 sunshine hours per year which, along with the tried and tested traditional winemaking techniques provide ideal conditions for delicate, fruity and elegant rosé.
