In the same foothills of Mont Sainte Victoire in which Paul Cﾎzanne lived and found inspiration, the Sumeire family has thrived since the thirteenth century. This magical place is shielded from northern winds, with abundant sunshine and chalky soil regulating temperatures and helping to create a unique microclimate. The Sumeires added Chﾉteau Maupague to their collection of properties in 1991, with a goal of creating a classic rosﾎ on par with the finest of the region, light in color, fresh, aromatic and dry. Chﾉteau Maupague is a blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Cinsault and 5% Syrah. Rosﾎ's with a majority of Grenache are rare for the region and result in a much more complex wine that transcends the appellation. Both the Cuvﾎe Cabaret from the younger vines on the estate and the Cuvﾎe Sainte Victoire from the older vines offer amazing value and remarkably high quality, while beautifully representing the best of Provence.
