Easter and the end of Lenten abstinence look like being drenched in sun so reach for the rosé.

Chateau Léoube, the Bamford family’s Provencal vineyard, have just released their new 2013 vintages, which include a delicate, pale pink sparkler just perfect for a spring (or any other) time aperitif.


Produced with the ethos of Daylesford Organic in mind these wines are natural and pure, according to Chateau Léoube director Jérome Pernot, you can sip away all day without fear of a hang over so time for a top up.


Starting with organically grown Cabernet Franc hand-harvested grapes from 10 year old vines and certified by ECOCERT the sparkling de Léoube (£25) is a fresh and balanced wine with a pleasing mineral finish but don’t overlook the Rosé de Léoube (£15) a blend of grenache, cinsault, syrah, mourvédre or Secret de Léoube (£20) which combines grenache, cinsault, and cabernet sauvignon.
