This organic wine has a great balance between freshness and complexity. it's full and round, holding back at first, then opening up to a beautiful palate of peach and a hint of black olive. Drink as an aperitif and pairs well with a black olive tapenade or to accompany grilled fish such as a red mullet.
Chateau Saint Roux are committed to flying the flags of tradition, terroir and ecology alike.
The winery's roots date back to the 15th century, when it was founded by an Italian nobleman who, astounded by the unusual red soils of the area, nicknamed it 'Roux'. Yet the distinctive vermillion and orange hues of the soil are significant; caused by high levels of iron, they translate into uniquely deep, complex and punchy flavours in the wine.
Chateau Saint Roux today are governed by an eco-friendly approach, which extends far beyond their wines. Aside from running a sustainable restaurant, the winery is also home to a working farm rich in biodiversity, and home to a herd of 50 goats.
