In the same foothills of Mont Sainte Victoire in which Paul Cézanne 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 Château Maupague to their collection of properties in 1991, with a goal of creating a classic rosé on par with the finest of the region, light in color, fresh, aromatic and dry. Rosé’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 Cuvée Cabaret from the younger vines on the estate and the Cuvée Sainte Victoire from the older vines offer amazing value and remarkably high quality, while beautifully representing the best of Provence.
Martine’s Wines is the exclusive importer for Château Maupague in all of the United States.
