Falling for Château Léoube Rosé from Provence

The first time that I tasted Château Léoube rosé was in California, not in Provence. It wasn’t that long ago that rosé wine was hard to find in the USA. Initially, it was often confused with white zinfandel, wine of a similar colour but not similar in any other way. I remember rosé being dismissed as a watered-down red with half the alcohol content! But then, about ten years ago, Provençal rosé hit the American supermarket shelves, and when sales exploded, it sent the local vintners scampering to produce something to rival it. And small wonder that Provençal rosé has been such a success, for this subtle, pale pink shimmer in your glass, so crisp and refreshing, seems to define what so many of us love about Provence. Now that I have tried this wine in California, England and Provence, I highly recommend the Château Léoube vineyard.
