Chateau d Esclans Les Clans Cotes de Provence Rose 2018

Barrel fermentation has produced a rosé with a winning combination of structure and complexity. Aromas of grilled nuts and red berry lead to a generously textured palate aBnd a creamy-citrus finish. Offers a mix of lovely nectarine, peach and tangerine hints, with echoes of sandalwood and bergamot carrying through the long, detailed finish. A suave, creamy feel echoes throughout.

Sacha Lichine is a man of pedigree. His father, of Russian descent, and American mother, had built their wealth and reputation with a Bordeaux business which included Chateaux Prieurie Lichine and Lascombes in Margaux. Sacha Lichine has continued with the family tradition for innovation, by drawing on his wide experience of winemaking and his keen understanding of consumer needs a range of contemporary Mediterranean wines with the ‘chicken’ labels, whose fruit forward style makes them immediately enjoyable. They are southern French with a distinct New World accent.
Tasting Notes
A delicate, pale pink in colour, this has some evidence of oak on the nose, which gives the wine a smoky character. The palate is complex yet elegant with notes of nectarines, peach and redcurrant. The wine underwent Bâtonnage two times a week for ten months, this added complex flavours of sandlewood and butter and gave the wine its medium body and creamy texture.
Food
Try this wine alongside a lobster thermidor.
 
Lovely nose, gently vanilla cream character with wild strawberry fruit and hint of toast. Palate too, touch of pear drop, but core is peach, pear and wild strawberry, with some toasty oak, oily texture, touch of creamy vanilla and a long finish with touch of bitter almond, hint of alcohol warmth and orange blossom. Lovely, layered persistent wine, rosé or not… and hard not to drink with soft acidity and fine dry grip to the finish too.
