A pale partridge eye pink with a perfumed bouquet, which follows with elegant summer fruits. The palate is refined and elegant with faint cherry nuances and beautifully integrated balancing acidity. This superb rose is made from a blend of old vines and using traditional Burgundian wine making techniques, resulting in a rounded and expressive Provence rose with an unusual level of complexity.
The grapes are macerated for 2 days before fermentation and is then vinified in stainless steel vats.
Chateau dEsclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the chateau date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. The surrounding land around Chateau dEsclans is known as La Vallee des Esclans (the valley of the clans). At one point the entire area was part of the chateau property and over time was gradually parceled out. In 2006 Sacha Lichine acquired Chateau dEsclans beginning a new and exciting history for this remarkable Chateau and the 267 hectares surrounding it. Awarded The Wine Enthusiast`s European Winery of The Year Award for 2014.
