Provençal Wine Pairings: Château Léoube Rosé with Chicken

Contributor blog post by David Scott Allen @Provence WineZine:

When I saw a bottle of Château Léoube’s “Rosé de Léoube” on sale, I bought it. I’m no fool. Yes, it’s a little more expensive than our usual wine purchases, but I have heard from many people how good it is, and I wanted to know firsthand. Let me start by saying that I wish I had bought out their inventory! (So maybe I was a fool after all…?)

…Continue reading here for David’s description of the wine a light coloured rosé that from the sounds of it you should plan to buy if you see it on the liquor store shelves. David pairs this elegant wine with a unique chicken recipe from a cookbook geared to children. In other words, it is easy. Watch for the Cocoa & Lavender recipe in our feed.

It was love at first sight when my family and I arrived in the charming village of Lourmarin for a short vacation, nearly 20 years ago. We returned home to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the next thing I knew we were planning a much longer sojourn in that village and making arrangements to enroll our daughter in the local school there. That led to buying a maison de village— actually two, then a courtyard, a parking spot, and a bergerie— in our favorite Provençal village where we (readily) adopted that certain joie de vivre, established dear friendships, and, to this day, endeavor to blend in with the crowd at Café Gaby.

We no longer own property in Lourmarin, but we continue to hang our hats there frequently and gather fodder for our souls and for The Modern Trobaors and Provence WineZine. There is never a shortage.

The Modern Trobaors , conceived in 2008, is about all things Provence: its markets, hilltop villages, lavender, art, literature, culture, history, food, wine, and news. Provence WineZine, launched in August 2014, focuses on wines from the regions of Provence and the Southern Rhône Valley—with a special emphasis on Provence's world-renowned rosés—and the men and women who make them.
