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.
Considered as the head of the cuvée of Château d'Esclans, Garrus comes from old Grenache vines that will soon be a hundred years old. Fermented only in demi-muid of French oak, this powerful and elegant wine was at the heart of Sacha Lichine's vision, in 2006, to build great rosés. Garrus is today the icon of luxury rosé, a world-renowned wine.
It is impressive and concentrated, with a smooth finish highlighting spicy notes.
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.
