An interview with Carla Bruni

The supermodel and singer-songwriter Carla Bruni participated in creating the Roseblood Vintage, Château d’Estoublon’s iconic rosé wine. Find out more about her involvement in the creative process:

How did you learn the subtle art of vinification and blending?

Château d’Estoublon’s oenologist initiated me in this extraordinary world. Before we met, I simply enjoyed good wine. I had no idea that such a vast world was contained in a simple glass.
My involvement in Roseblood’s creation made me realize that wine is a work of art with many colors, fragrances and nuances.

How did the creation of the Roseblood Vintage begin?

It is inspired by Provence itself. An extremely refined wine, fresh, mineral, pale in color, with citrus notes. It can be sipped lightly, through it goes very well with Provençal flavors, especially Château d’Estoublon black olive pastes and olive-oils. Roseblood is also rather feminine for its colors and finesse, through remains very popular with men!

What fuelled your interest in oenology?

The notion of expertise, which is a real luxury in our world where everything is a mad rush. Creating a wine demands rigour, time and patience, it depends on nature and meteorology. Its producer only has control over the application of his know-how. Wine-making is also very important to our history, culture and traditions.

How do you see the region as a land of inspiration?

This southern region surrounded by the Alpilles mountains stands out for its minerality giving it an almost telluric dimension. Provence is not only “méridionale”, but also poetic, sunny. Its amazing light gives each detail a halo of beauty.

Summer at Château d'Estoublon...

Moments of warmth and sharing at large tables, contemplation, wonderful solitude too. Summer that embodies excellence.

There are very few places in the world where one feels so welcome.
