Chateau du Seuil was built between the 13th and 14th Century and is located just 10km north from Aix-en-Provence, in the heart of the Provence. The 300-hectare domain has a magnificent view that spans from the Sainte Victoire in the east to the Mediterranean in the south west, surrounding by a woods and a great biodiversity of deer, partridges, hares or wild boar, taking opportunity to pick the local wild thyme.
The Chateau de Seuil develops wines that have a unique character among the best wines of Provence. Situated on a plateau, at an altitude between 350 and 450 metres, the vineyard benefits from the sun and a particularly favourable and diverse terroir for growing grapes: dry, filtering limestone soil with diversified exposure; a dry and hot climate in summer but cool at night; a permanent and beneficial Mistral breeze that reduces the risk of disease; an altitude that limits the alcohol content of wines and gives them freshness.
This is a superb, classic Provence Rose – with a light, shiny, bright, clear salmon colour, it shows red fruits and white flowers aromas blossom on the first nose. A gourmet citrus juice carries through on the palate in a fresh and lively impulse. An elegant and exquisite final delights the taste-buds.
