Château Barbeyrolles

IMG_2820

A lazy summer lunch on the French riviera isn’t quite complete without a glass (or,usually, more) of cold rosé wine. Var region is especially famous for rosé wines and my latest coup de coeur comes from Château Barbeyrolles, organic vineyard located near Gassin village. The estate is owned my madame Régine Sumeire, who passionately assures the continuity of the work started by her grandfather Gabriel Sumeire. With it’s harmonious fruity and floral notes, Château Barbeyrolles “Pétale de Rose” clearly stands out from the rest of the rosé wines I’ve tasted (which are often quite boring). 15 euros a bottle if you buy it directly from the producer. Highly recommended.

    I was there this morning to buy a few bottles, after yesterday’s lunch at club 55. Thanks for the advice. St Tropez is always unique !
