Chateau la Tour de l'Eveque, Petale de Rose Cotes de Provence, 2019

Provence, France

The colour is pale rose petal, with gentle silvery hues.

The nose is delicate, offering ripe strawberry and nectarine aromas, flowery notes such as peony, some orange blossom, intertwined with tangerine peel, some aniseed and liquorice coming along with a subtle smoky, but airy sensation.

Palate is dry and mellow, caressing with satin-like texture, medium plus acidity and generous zests giving spiciness.

Flavours are intense, pungent with lots of liquorice and pink pepper melting into the sweet fruitiness of strawberry and peach.

Finish is long, with noble balsamic bitterness, offering a slightly tannic touch, and thus a certain structure. Great with food, can keep well for the next 1-2 years.

Chateau la Tour de l'Eveque

In 1958, the Sumeire family who have owned the Font-Freye estate since 1933, acquired this large estate near Pierrefeu, within the Var
region. Formerly the summer residence of the archbishops of Toulon, this property bears two names inherited from its long past. Château la Tour de l’Evêque and Château la Tour Sainte Anne. Its past belongs to the history of Provence and France. Queen Mary, Countess of Provence, gave privileges on this land to the inhabitants from the village of Cuers. The sister of King René, Queen Jeanne, the Queen of Naples, is thought to have stayed there.

At Château la Tour de l’Evêque, visitors are welcomed by the Dolphins’ fountain and its pretty water feature. It has always been said that in the old days there was no water in this estate, because when the lady of the manor’s husband left for the crusades, she poisoned the well with her tears… A few centuries later, Gabriel Sumeire, put an end to this curse. With his visionary genius, he linked the property to the fabulously abundant Font-Freye spring conveying the water by gravity to the Dolphins’ fountain.

Roger Sumeire, who has been in charge of the family estates since 1946, worked in perfect symbiosis with his father Gabriel. Works were carried out on a vast scale : hills were dug up to build dry-stone walled terraces.

Régine Sumeire continues the work of her family. At the end of 2010 she started a vast project of building a new cellar in order to vinify and bottle while following gravity principles. The new cellar was inaugurated for the 2011 harvest.
