The first traces of Esclans Castle date back to the Roman Empire. It was then an observation post of the Gulf of Frejus, to prevent possible maritime invasions. Built-in the 19th century, the present castle has had many owners. It was first bought by the Ranque brothers, before belonging to Joseph Toussaint Caussemille in 1875, and passed to the Perraud family from 1955 to 1994. It was then owned by a Swedish pension fund before it's acquired by Sacha Lichine in 2006. This Bordeaux native (Château Prieuré-Lichine, in Margaux) creates a global brand and contributes significantly to the growth of rosé wines Côtes de Provence in the segment of luxury rosés, if not high level.
In 2006, Château d’Esclans produced for the first time a few barrels of rosé from a vineyard of 80-years-old vines atop a hill in Provence. A new chapter had begun in the world of rosé.
Incredibly complex aromas of subtle white stones, slate, light berries and peach character plus a hint of cream. Full-bodied yet so light and agile with a focused and dense center palate. Incredibly energetic. As always, one of the very best rosés in the world.
