"A must-have Provence rosé, Lampe de Méduse is a gourmet wine that will bring a nice touch of freshness to your summer evenings."
Lampe de Méduse is the signature cuvee of Château Sainte Roseline.
The Lampe de Méduse from Château Sainte Roseline, a First Classified Growth of 1955 in the Provence region, is a wine steeped in history and housed in a bottle with a particular shape. First created in 1950 by the Baroness Rasque of Laval, the Lampe de Méduse wine takes its name from the Knights of Medusa, a prestigious brotherhood working for the promotion of Provence wines, born in 1690. Before being inducted, the Knights of Medusa used to "Lamper le vin", meaning "to drink a large amount of wine in one stroke".
Tasting notes:Pretty pale pink with a heady scent of summer berries, wild herbs and a touch of sea spray. A dry and slightly textured Rose made from the classic Provence grapes Grenache, Mourvedre and Cinsault.
We advise you to serve this wine between 12 and 14°C. To be enjoyed as an aperitif, with summer dishes such as grilled fish, summer salads, white meats and topped with parmiggiano reggiano.
