The new vintage has arrived! Welcome 2022

The appellation of Côtes de Provence covers a wide swathe of Provençal vineyard from Aix east to Cannes. It is renowned for its pale, dry rosé wines, arguably the best known is Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel.

The 2022 vintage is an equisite wine in the palest partridge eye pink with a perfumed bouquet, which follows with elegant summer fruits.

The palate is refined and elegant with faint cherry nuances and beautifully integrated balancing acidity. This superb rose wine is made from a blend of old vines and using traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques, resulting in a rounded and expressive Provence rose with unusual complexity.

This rosé is crisp, fresh and elegant and comes highly recommended. 

Wine critic Matthew Jukes said of it “You could drink it from mid-day to midnight” - who are we to disagree?

Chateau d’Esclans

Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast.

The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. The surrounding land around Chateau d’Esclans is known as La Vallee des Esclans (the valley of the clans). At one point the entire area was part of the chateau’s property and over time was gradually parceled out.

In 2006 Sacha Lichine acquired Chateau d’Esclans beginning a new and exciting history for this remarkable Chateau and the 267 hectares surrounding it. Awarded The Wine Enthusiast`s European Winery of The Year Award for 2014.

Provence, France

Provence is one of the oldest wine regions in France, with a history dating back over 2,600 years. The ancient Greeks were the first to introduce vine cultivation to the area in the 6th century BCE, and the Romans later expanded the region's viticulture.

Today, Provence is best known for its rosé wines, which account for over 80% of the region's wine production.
