NEW FRESH RELEASE!!

"Delicate, with a minerally undertone flanking the white cherry, peach and raspberry notes, interwoven with spice and herb details. Lingering finish. Drink now. -G.S." (WS)

"Light brilliant orange. Fresh strawberry, melon and nectarine scents plus a hint of candied orange peel. Silky and open-knit, showing good depth to the juicy pit fruit and red berry flavors. Finishes supple and long, leaving juicy peach and honeydew melon notes behind." (VM)

"This is the real McCoy for this price point. The freshness here is undeniable, as it exudes citrus, rose petals, nectarines, sliced dill and coriander and the signature strawberries and cream. Flavorful and intense on the medium- to full-bodied palate yet so very restrained and elegant. Super-value wine as always. Drink now." (JS)

Winery Notes:
As a negociant and vinificateur (winery), Caves d’esclans identifies vineyards, grapes and wines from château d’esclans as well as local growers to make what has reputedly become the world’s greatest rosé. As our objective is to obtain the best quality grapes and wines, we have created relationships with the local grape growers, committed beside Caves d’esclans, whose vineyards are treated with the same high standards of quality as are the vineyards of Château d’esclans.

Grapes grown from some of the most choice land in the surrounding region of La Motte en Provence, consisting primarily of Grenache, Rolle (Vermentino) and Cinsault. Harvesting at sunrise to noon. Optical grape sorting. Destemming and slight crushing at 7-8c to avoid oxidation. Both the free run juice and pressed juices are vinified in stainless steel. “Batônnage” is twice weekly. Temperature controlled
