Château Léoube releases limited edition rosé with City Pub Group
Provence’s Château Léoube has chosen The City Pub Group as its official partner through which to launch a limited pink wine in time for summer.
With the current British heatwave calling for long evenings in pub gardens, it’s fortuitous timing for the release of a new organic rosé in the producer’s Love by Léoube range.
The wine has travelled from Château Léoube’s vineyards on the coast of Provence to Parsons Green in South-West London for its official unveiling, and the rosé will roll out across England and Wales shortly for the 2023 summer season.
Described by Léoube as “a quintessential, dry Provence rosé style”, the wine is a blend of predominantly Grenache and Cinsault grapes.
“This cuvée is a tribute to our love of nature, Provence and good rosé,” says Romain Ott, winemaker, Château Léoube. “Love by Léoube is an organic Côtes de Provence wine; an approachable wine but with a solid backbone to hold itself. It’s round and smooth with light citrus aromas and notes of white, fleshy fruits.”
The limited edition Love by Léoube launched at The City Pub Group’s Aragon House venue in Parsons Green, a Grade II listed building complete with 15 boutique bedrooms atop the bar, and will soon be available across the pub group’s estate of 43 venues in England and Wales, including properties in Cambridge, Norfolk, Bristol, Bath, Winchester and Newport, as well as Chelsea, Battersea, Clapham, Notting Hill, Wandsworth and Hackney in London.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the remarkable team at Léoube to bring a limited edition vintage of their well-established Love by Léoube range,” says Clive Watson, CEO and owner, The City Pub Group.
“Recognised for producing some of the finest wines in Provence, we’ve always admired their approach to winemaking, from their commitment to producing sustainable organic wine to their protection of one of the most beautiful and unique landscapers in Provence.”
Château Léoube hinted at more joint ventures to come with the British pub group, saying that it looked forward to “further projects flourishing”.
