AOP LES BAUX DE PROVENCE
Nestling at the foot of the northern slope of the Alpilles Mountains, between Saint Remy de Provence and Eygalières, the Romanin estate covers 250 hectares (including 58 hectares of vineyards and 4 hectares of olive trees tended with the same care) in the Les Baux de Provence appellation area. is is red wine land, its scree soil contain stones, which store heat during the day and return it to the vines at night, and its vines are cooled by the Mistral wind.
When they were the owners of Château Montrose (Second Grand Cru Classé Saint-Estèphe) Anne- Marie and Jean-Louis Charmolüe made a wine described by the wine guides as “monumental”. For Château Romanin, they also wanted the very best. In agreement with the estate’s new director and oenologist, Franck Breau, they decided to vinify the grapes from individual parcels separately, to create more pertinent blends, and more precise, more aromatic wines.
