GRAND CRU CLASSES- Grand Cru Grapevine: ‘Tis the Season to Think Pink

Château d’Esclans 2012, Côtes de Provence, France, $35.00
Well-known for its Whispering Angel rosé, Caves d’Esclans produces several other rosé wines including this one, which is a blend of Grenache, Rolle, Syrah, Tibouren and Cinsault. With some of the wine spending time in neutral oak barrels and undergoing bâtonnage (lees stirring), this wine takes on some complexity and structure, but still displays hallmark floral, melon and berry aromas.
