Championed by the sustainably minded Bamford Family, the award-winning Château Léoube presents a luxury canned rosé that reflects the unique Provence terroir
October 1, 2020 – Bormes-les-Mimosas, France- Château Léoube launches today Le Petit Rosé by Léoube, the first luxury, sustainably made rosé wine packaged in a can from the famed French region of Côtes de Provence. Carefully selected by the winemaker of Léoube, Le Petit Rosé by Léoube reinterprets the Provençal staple – iconic to the South of France – and presents an all-occasion wine that is perfect year round.
Le Petit Rosé by Léoube is a pale, refreshing rosé with lively flavors of white peach and summer berries, finished with a hint of minerality. The single serving rosé can pairs well with snacks such as almonds, ham and antipasti. Made from 100% organic grapes especially selected from the region for their taste, Le Petit Rosé by Léoube is the first (AOC) Côtes de Provence rosé wine can to be certified organic. The blend is made up of Grenache and Cinsault.
“Our vision has always been to produce wines with character and of exceptional quality while remaining true to our ethos of sustainability. With Le Petit Rosé by Léoube, the carefully considered flavors of Provence can be simply enjoyed in any setting,” said Carole Bamford, owner of Château Léoube. “The first canned rosé of its kind, Léoube’s sustainable and organic approach to everything stems from our recognizing the responsibility we have to protect and preserve the future of our planet.”
Le Petit Rosé by Léoube’s versatile can is attractive for those on-the-go. The simplicity of the recycled aluminum can is a convenient way to store this young and fresh wine; lightweight, easy to transport and infinitely recyclable everywhere. With its environmentally friendly credentials, it is no surprise that consumer trends have shown a rise in the popularity of canned beverages, particularly single served canned wine amongst millennials. From outdoor events to picnics, parties at home, traveling, and more, the can offers convenience for consumers. The airtight cans are light impervious and designed to have no air exposure, preserving the wine so it does not alter or oxidise in the can.
The historic Château Léoube resides in a coastal bay in Provence, and prides itself on time-honored, artisan farming, organic certified, and even following some biodynamic principles. Guided by the expertise of winemaker Romain Ott, Léoube’s 65 hectares of vineyards produce award-winning wines of character that are true to the distinctive terroir, while remaining respectful of nature. From the historic Domaine de Léoube, one of the most beautiful protected sites in Europe, the Bamford family-owned estate has a commitment to respect and work in harmony with the rhythm of the seasonal cycles, underpinned by the family’s organic philosophies and environmentally conscious ideals.
