Provender Brown Perth Deli

Vive La Chateau Routas

Introducing the famed trio of Chateau Routas wines to Provender Brown's independent off licence in Perth.


The Estate of Chateau Routas in France is nestled between the old town elegance of Aix-en-Provence, and the white sand beaches that line the Gulf de Saint Tropez. An altitude of 350 meters provides cooler nights contributing to wines that combine both freshness and grape complexity.

In 2005 Sir David Murray and family took ownership, ushering in a new era for Chateau Routas. Keith Murray now oversees the vineyard and with a home right here in Perth it was only a matter of time before this wonderful wine took pride of place on the shelves of Provender Brown! 

Chateau Routas is situated within the “Coteaux Varois en Provence”, a key appellation of the Provence wine region in the far South East of France. It was introduced in March 1993 as a complement to the “Cotes de Provence” created 16 years earlier. The appellation is an enclave of the “Cote de Provence”.

In recent years, their rose in particular has attracted much in the way of critical acclaim from the wine world and it they have been heralded as “one of the best wine producers in Provence” with James Suckling suggesting “This may be the best value Rose in the world."


Chateau Routas Rosé Tasting Notes

Freshly cut watermelon, ripe peach aromas and floral notes lead to a palate alive with wild strawberries and hints of mineral notes. Crisp acidity and a refreshing finish. Avalable in 75cl and as a magnum. Well, you can never have too much of a good thing, can you?

Chateau Routas White Tasting Notes

Pale straw colour, with a light green hue. On the nose, aromas of lime sherbet, citrus, ripe pear and a hint of gooseberry come forward. On the palate, tropical fruit notes lead to a crisp, lively acidity. Perfect after a long day venturing around the Provençal region, or simply sitting under a tree, shaded from the midday sun.

Chateau Routas Red Tasting Notes

A brilliant red colour. The nose is first dominated by very ripe red fruits with small berries, and cherry and
spices. Then it exults soft and discreet overtone of vanilla, mixed with cherry and laurel. The mouth is large, but the structure is harmonious. The finish is slightly spicy. Perfect with meats, pasta and soft complex cheeses.
