About the producer: Caves d’Esclans
In the heart of the Provence AOC near St Tropez, Caves d’Esclans sources its grapes from Château d’Esclans as well as local growers to make what has reputedly become one of the world’s greatest rosé. Originally known as Terre d’Esclans, the Château has been sold to various family until it was finally acquired by Sacha Lichine in 2006. Originally from a Margaux winemaking family at previous owners of Château Prieuré Lichine, Sacha felt that Rosé had strong potential to become a more serious wine. The estate is known for its rosé sourced from old Grenache vines (up to 90 years old) producing greater concentration of fruits flavours.
The 44 hectares of vines are mainly planted with Grenache, Rolle (Vermentino) and some Cinsault, Merlot, Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Tibouren.
