Description

Already the owner of the Quinta do Pessegueiro in the Douro for more than 25 years, Roger Zannier took up the challenge of turning the Château Saint-Maur into one of the finest references in Provence, entrusting the fate of this Provencal gem to his son-in-law, Marc Monrose.
Situated in Cogolin, Just 10 km from Saint-Tropez, to the west of the plain that links the foothills of the impressive Maures mountain mass to the sea. In the distance, at the top of its hill, arise the ruins of Grimaud Castle. Nestled at its feet are its packed houses, and then the vines that cover the hillsides between scrubland and cork oaks.

Château Saint Maur has one sole objective: extracting the the flavourful part of the grape juice with as much intensity as finesse, and master the colour, which is particularly important for the rosé wines that constitute 90% of the production: upscale rosé, pure wines delicately crafted for pleasure or high gastronomy.
