With the Mediterranean sea as a backdrop, Château d'Esclans is located in the heart of Provence, to the north-east of Saint-Tropez. The first signs of Château d'Esclans’ existence date back to the Roman Empire. A time when it was used as an observation post over the Gulf of Fréjus, in order to prevent any possible maritime invasions.
Château d'Esclans is an extraordinary estate in the heart of Provence. The Château is known for its old Grenache vines, which produce a grape whose aromas are more concentrated than the young vines.
Built in the 19th century, the current château has had many owners. Owned by Sacha Lichine since 2006, Château d'Esclans has contributed to the elevation of Côtes de Provence wines. With the Whispering Angel range, it has now become a world reference for Provence rosé wines.
On the French Riviera, a short distance away from the ancient Roman city of Fréjus, lies the Esclans Valley, home to the 44-hectare vineyard of the eponymous château. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on a terroir composed of clay, limestone or sandy gravel, depending on the plot. The tapestry of terroirs provides the château's wines with discernibly diverse identities.
An illustrious wine among the fine Côtes de Provence wines, Les Clans by Château d'Esclans is a gourmet wine that owes its uniqueness both to its aromatic expression and its great ageing potential.
This flavoursome rosé harmoniously reveals a complex and elegant expression throughout the tasting.
For an optimal tasting, serve at 8°C.
