Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Provence, France

Nestled in the heart of Provence, northeast of St. Tropez, lies a magical property called Château d’Esclans. This exceptional estate was acquired by Sacha Lichine in 2006 with the vision of creating the world’s greatest rosés, igniting the “Rosé Renaissance”. Now in its sixteenth vintage, Château d’Esclans is home to Whispering Angel, a wine that has taken the world by storm.

Situated on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, Château d’Esclans boasts a rich history that dates back to the times of the Gauls. The location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. Today, the estate’s vineyards are carefully tended to and the grapes are harvested in the morning to ensure they remain fresh.

Château d’Esclans produces a world-class rosé portfolio, including Whispering Angel, Rock Angel, Les Clans, and Garrus, all characterized by elegance, depth, richness, and complexity. Whispering Angel is the most famous rosé from Provence today and is made from Grenache, Cinsault, and Rolle (Vermentino). Its light hue is visually appealing and its flavor profile is rich and luscious, with a smooth and bone-dry finish. This quality rosé can be enjoyed from mid-day to midnight and pairs well with a wide range of cuisines.

Château d’Esclans’ rosés are made using a unique cross between stainless steel and barrel fermentation, giving them a full-style rosé with a smooth and creamy texture that is rich and long on the palate. 

The grapes used to make Château d’Esclans’ wines are sorted for both health and quality through Optical Eye Sorting. This process ensures that only the best grapes are selected, making their wines truly exceptional.

Château d’Esclans is a rare gem from the heart of Provence. Its rich history, exceptional vineyards, and world-class wines make it a must-visit destination for wine enthusiasts. So, the next time you are in Provence, be sure to stop by Château d’Esclans and experience the magic of this beautiful property for yourself.
