Chateau d'Esclans Les Clans Rose 2008

Product code: 1ESC3M2008

Very slightly paler than the Esclans, but all of these are a pale to mid-salmon colour. Intense, very concentrated aroma with the richness and warmth of old Grenache on the front palate and a bit of Vermentino/Rolle lift on the finish. Nice wine, though I wouldn't pay twice as much as for Esclans. Still quite Chewy on the finish. Jancis Robinson

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!
