Producer : CHATEAU SAINTE MARGUERITE
The land of Chateau Sainte Marguerite has been cultivated for Vineyard growth since antiquity. It was purchased in 1977 by Jean-Pierre Fayard and his wife, and has since grown to become one of Provence’s most dynamic and well respected estates. The vineyards are picturesque. Vines framed with palm trees, looking out over the ocean. It is this proximity to the sea, and optimum sun exposure, that sets Chateau Sainte Marguerite apart. The wines are fresh and vibrant, rather than overly ripe and thin (like many other wines of the region). It’s unsurprising that Chateau Sainte Marguerite ‘s vineyards are classified Cru Classé and certified Organic. There are 18 cru classés out of 400 producers in Provence.
Provence and delicate, pale pink Rosé are synonymous with each other. It is the classic summer drink, universally loved on hot sunny days. Chateau Sainte Marguerite makes a particularly elegant and refined example. Pale and delicate, but still packed with depth of flavour. Symphonie is their top of the range wine produced only with the best grapes from the best plots.
