Description:
This is such an elegant rose that is more similar to a white Burgundy. One of the most stylish, elegant roses the wine world has to offer.

From 8-year-old Grenache vines. Seems the palest and most orange of the 28s. Slightly more savoury and more obviously garrigue-influenced than Les Clans. Lovely creamy texture and a little bit of lemon cream on the finish. Reminds me of a white burgundy in some ways. Very persistent. 18/2 Jancis Robinson, www.jancisrobinson.com

This is a very unusual top quality rose from the South of France. It is made from a blend of local grapes, and it is aged in oak barrels. It is a delicate salmon pink and has complex flavours of red berries and a savoury creaminess.

Producer Information

Chateau d'Esclans, a fantastic property with an insanely grand house near La Motte (the granny flat has five bedrooms), makes what many commentators believe is the world's best rose wines.

The man behind the project is Sacha Lichine, son of the writer and vigneron Alexis and until 1999 the proprietor of Margaux's Chateau Prieur-Lichine. Since 1999, Sacha has been busy building up Domaines Sacha Lichine with d'Esclans as the jewel in the crown.

Everything is done with quality as the overriding focus. Sacha is very proud to say he takes the same care and attention of his grapes as any of the top Bordeaux chateaux do of theirs, and no expense is spared to ensure every vintages reaches its potential in the bottle. The wines themselves are made by Patrick Leon, who used to make the wine at none other than Chateau Mouton-Rothschild and Opus One. Not a bad CV!
