Château d'Esclans

Château d'Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, 20 km northwest of the ancient Roman city of Fréjus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the château's site date back to Gaullist time during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Fréjus. The surrounding land around Château d'Esclans is know as La Vallée des Esclans (the valley of the clans). At one point the entire area was part of the Château's property and over time was gradually parceled out. In 2006 Sacha Lichine acquired Château d'Esclans beginning a new and exciting history for this remarkable Châteauy and the 267 hectares surrounding it. Awarded The Wine Enthusiast's European Winery of The Year Award for 2014.

Tasting Notes

A pale partridge eye pink with 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 rosé is made from a blend of old vines grown on the Esclans estate by Burgundian winemaking techniques resulting in a rounded and expressive Provence rosé with unusual complexity.

Food Matches

Drink as an aperitif or ideally served with fish soup, grilled sea fish like red Mullet, Bream or Sardines or Niçoise salad and cold Mediterranean vegetables.
