Description

Such a pretty pink with fresh peach and strawberry notes. Beautifully made and great quality. 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. 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 rosé 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 Prieuré-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! Harvesting at sunrise to noon by hand only in small crates to avoid oxidation. Destemming and slight crushing at7-8°C to avoid coloration. Both the free run and pressed juices are vinified in stainless steel. “Batonnage” is twice weekly. Temperature controlled. Food Recommendations:- Salmon or Trout, Tuna steaks, Prawns & Langoustines
