Château Sainte Marguerite for Summer.
Porte Noire’s range now includes a Provençal rosé made in collaboration with Château Sainte Marguerite and Idris Elba. It’s the perfect choice for these warmer days.
Château Sainte Marguerite is a well-known name amongst those who appreciate all the qualities of a great rosé. Chateau Sainte Marguerite was founded in 1929 by Andre Chevillon. It is located in the village of Londe Les Maures, in the department of Var in Provence. In 1977, Brigitte and Jean-Pierre Fayard acquired the then 11-hectare estate, which covers 75 hectares today.
Celebrated actor Idris Elba appreciates the terroir and the wines produced there. His partnership with Château Sainte Marguerite has given birth to this exceptional rosé which is a traditional marriage of Grenache and Cinsault.
Ideal for summer sipping
This pleasantly light and fruity rosé is pale salmon pink and ideal for summer sipping. It brims with raspberry and strawberry notes with the freshness of lemon zest. There are hints of white blossoms, cut grass and balanced minerality.
It’s the weather for salads, simply roasted chicken, white fish and seafood. All of these dishes would be deliciously enhanced by a well-chilled glass of Porte Noire Rosé from Château Sainte Marguerite. For your pre-dinner entertaining, vegetarian nibbles make a wonderful partner to this wine, which can also be enjoyed later in the evening with some show-stopping desserts. It’s a crowd pleaser in every regard.
