2017 Chateau d ’Esclans 'Garrus' Rose Cotes de Provence
Winemaker Notes: Considered Chateau d'Esclans' finest wine, made from a single vineyard of nearly 100 year-old Grenache vines, entirely fermented and aged in large French oak barrels, the powerful and elegant Garrus was at the heart to Sacha Lichine’s vision in 2006 to make Rosé grand. Today Garrus is firmly established as a world class, iconic luxury Rosé. It is an impressive and concentrated Rosé with a creamy finish featuring rich and spicy notes rivaling any top white wine or prestige Champagne.
James Suckling - "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."
Wine Enthusiast - #94 Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2019 - "This is a rich, impressive wine, with spicy flavors from wood aging that are well integrated with the ripe berry fruits. Together, they give intensity, sophistication and power, making this a perfect candidate to enjoy alongside food. Drink now, although the wine should age well through 2022."
