This label, used to show the classification and other markings, is from the Chateau de Fonscolombe, in Le-Puy-Sainte-Réparade, a village about 15 km north of Aix-en-Provence. The label is for a 1996 apellation Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, an Appellation d'Origine Controlée (AOC).

The Cru Classé page shows a label for one of the top-level Chateau Roubine wines.

The Vin de Pays page shows a couple of labels for the lower-classification wine.

Where it's Bottled

Mise en bouteille au Château - The wine was bottled at the chateau, in this instance, the Château de Fonscolombe.

Mise en bouteille au Domaine - The wine was bottled at the domain, or the property where it was made. This is the equivalent of "bottled at the chateau".

Mise en bouteille dans nos caves - Bottled in our cellars, but not necessarily those of the vineyard.
