Roger Zannier, owner of Quinta do Pessegueiro in the Douro region for over 25 years, acquired Château Saint-Maur in 2011 with the ambition of making it a benchmark for Côtes de Provence wines. Located a few kilometres from Saint-Tropez, Château Saint-Maur has been a Cru Classé since 1955.
With a surface area of around one hundred hectares, the vineyard of Château Saint-Maur lies on a clay-limestone soil rich in schist and quartz.
Vinification and ageing
The grapes are cold-macerated at low temperature, followed by ageing period in stainless steel tanks.
Cabernet Sauvignon (3%).
A beautiful pale colour with salmon hues.
Expressive, the nose blends exotic fragrances of mango, vine peach and citrus fruit.
Very elegant, the palate is seduced by this wine’s intense peach aromas, its freshness and its delicate salinity on the finish.
Food and wine pairing
This Excellence rosé 2021 by Château Saint-Maur will pair beautifully with meats (a hanger steak and veal sweetbread served with a girolle mushroom sauce), vegetables (courgette flowers stuffed with Broccio cheese), fish (grilled red mullet with a Creole sauce, tuna steak with herbs) or even cheeses and desserts (mozzarella di Buffala, lychee sorbet)
For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 6 and 7°C.
