Chateau d’Esclans Esclans Rosé 2008
by Gareth Groves
Everyone loves rosé, especially when it is sunny. And there are so many styles around, from syrupy Californian numbers that taste like boiled sweets to the wonderfully alliterative posh, pale Provencal numbers. You can go cheap (and quite possibly nasty) or you can splash the cash on a £70 bottle.
Can you really spend £70 on rosé? Amazingly, yes, you can.
