Château Sainte-Croix, Magnolia Rosé, Cotes de Provence, 2022
Based on 50 hectares, Château Sainte Croix is now run by the fourth generation of the Pélépol family - Florence and Stéphane. An old fortified farm of the 12th Century the property was occupied by Cistercian monks. In 1924 the Pélépol family had the opportunity to buy 5 hectares of vines, having vinified their wines at the co-operative, they turned to Château Sainte Croix, then in rubble and rebuilt it to its former glory, producing wines on the surrounding lands ever since. In the winery, free run juice from Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah gives colour and fragrance to their classic Provence Rosé.
