Chateau d'Esclans Esclans Rose 2012

Product code: 1ESC2B2012

This blend includes some Grenache from 8-year-old vines, with Cinsault, Rolle and Syrah. Freshness in abundance on the nose, a little creaminess to the fruit aromas, although there are more complex notes of liquorice. Very nicely composed on the palate.

Product guide note

This is a top quality rosé from the South of France, made from a blend of local grape varieties. As is typical for this area is a pale and delicate pink. It is full flavours and aromas of ripe, crisp strawberries.

Production information

Producer: Chateau d'Esclans

Everything at Chateau d'Esclans is done with quality as the overriding focus. They are very proud to say they take the same care and attention of their grapes as any of the top Bordeaux chateaux do of theirs, and no expense is spared to ensure every vintage 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!
