Chateau d’Esclans Rose 2006,
Côtes de Provence
Sacha Lichine used to strut his stuff as the owner of Chateau Prieure-Lichine, one of Bordeaux’s top estates. But since 2006 he has been in Provence—and what a good job he’s doing. At Chateau d’Esclans he found a patch of eighty-year-old Grenache vines and is making a superb range of roses from them. The lovely pale colour hides a wine of real depth and concentration that is packed full of fruit.
