How does a rose elude boundaries between being a superb aperitif rosé and a fine wine that enjoys the versatility of being successfully paired with a broad range of fine cuisine? Chateau d’Esclans Rock Angel… the highly eligible wine, if you serve it they will come.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 95
Decanter
DWWA 2017 Gold Medal: Light intensity lemon and strawberries nose; medium-bodied, textured, lees on the palate with some smoked stone, herbs, and a hint of red fruit. Good structure, intense, with a long finish.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is the latest wine from the same producer as the popular Whispering Angel rosé. It has a wonderful herbal character that lifts the bright red-currant fruit. Acidity and fruit are allied with the mineral texture to create a wine that will be just right for food.

Also enchanted by the Provence his father speaks of with emotion, Sacha Alexis Lichine, convinced by the potential of these sun-drenched soils, become the owner, with the Angostura group, of Chateau d'Esclans in 2006. Since then, he hasn't ceased to combine his talent and know-how to this magical terroir, and has given a new dimension to Provence Rose, making a unique assemblage of refinement and pleasure. A new chapter has begun in the world of Rose.

Patrick Leon has unparalleled experience in making among the great wines of the world.

Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provence appellations and extending all the way east to the border of Italy. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a warm Mediterranean wine-producing region.

Here there is a new focus on quality rosé, as it defines four fifths of the region’s wines. Following in the rosé footsteps, a lot of new effort is going into the region’s red production. A new generation has turned its focus on high quality Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. Cotes de Provence white wines, which represent a miniscule part of the region as far as volume, are nonetheless worthy of consideration and can include any combination of Clairette, Semillon, Ugni Blanc and Vermentino.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
