Chateau d'Esclans Garrus 2019
"Garrus is always awesome. This is a sensational vintage for Garrus and I rate it as highly as the epic 2015, and that means that this is a perfect 20/20 in my notes. Nothing comes close in 2019 (apart from its sibling Les Clans) and I have tasted hundreds of bottles. The difference between this wine and 2015 is that the '15 was very obviously statuesque with amazing flanks and bold musculature. By contrast, the 2019 is subtle, brooding, complex and intricately perfumed. The nose is cool and soothing and the palate is a veritable iceberg of power and equilibrium and while we can only sense the scale of the grandeur of this wine, the signposts on the surface are already devastatingly attractive. You simply must buy and keep this wine for at least twelve months before you pop a cork! Drink 2021-2027. 20+/20 Matthew Jukes.
Chateau d'Esclans Les Clans 2019
"Fermented and aged in large sized casks, this is another successful vintage of Les Clans, holding its place in my estimation as the most enjoyable 'luxury' rosés. Delicate yet hugely gulpable with traces of rose petal, orange peel, citrus, raspberry and redcurrant. It has the barest hint of oak in terms of satin texture and expansion through the palate, but not getting in the way of a saline kick on the finish. I would add that if the alcohol really is as high as it says on the label, it hides it extremely well." Drink 2020-2024. 95 Points - Jane Anson, Decanter
Chateau d'Esclans Estate Rose 2019
"This is so yummy, with sliced peaches, lemons and some stone and white pepper. Minerally. It is medium-bodied and fruity yet subtle and very long. A beautiful rosé. Drink now and enjoy."

Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty five kilometres northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. The chateau’s cellar structure or foundation (known today as the oldest in the region) housed an original Chateau that was given by the Comte de Provence to Gérard De Villeneuve, in 1201. The current chateau, inspired by Tuscan Villa design, was built during the mid 19th century.
Garrus was first produced in 2006 after the winery was purchased by Sacha Lichine, former owner of Château Prieuré Lichine in Margaux. His exceptional wine comes from the Château d'Esclans, which produces a few barrels of rosé from 80-year-old vines planted atop a hill in Provence and vinified by the former oenologist of the Rothschild wine estate. Nothing is left to chance. Go on a journey to discover a new chapter in the world of Rosés: here is the most expensive rosé in the world... A rarity!
