Château Léoube is situtated on 560 hectares (65h of vines) along the stunning coastline of the Mediterranean Sea in Bormes-les-Mimosas, France.
Léoube's winemaker, Romain Ott (of the famed Domaine Ott family), is a firm believer in environmentally friendly viticulture and winemaking. In the vineyard, Ott forbids the use of weed killers, picks only by hand, and maintains very low yields. In the cellar, he ensures the use of whole clusters crushed by direct pressing, fermentation done with indigenous yeasts & full malo-lactic fermentation (extremely rare for Rosé), & low to no use of sulfites.
Grapes blending is done before pressing, at which time the wine undergoes along élevage (6 months on the lees) to allow complex flavors and textures to develop. Final blending before bottling.Winery website
