Château Léoube, Love by Léoube, Provence, France, 2021
(at Menier Penthouse, London SE1, 27 Apr 2022)
This well-known Provence château has come up trumps with this affordable, organic cuvée, blended by Léoube's respected winemaker, Romain Ott. A 50/50 blend of Grenache and Cinsault, it's pressed gently to avoid too much colour or tannin, and so is a pretty pale rose colour. There's lovely Provençal typicity here – white fruit, peach and white flowers – and the elegant packaging makes it a perfect choice to take to a summer dinner party.
