Chateau d'Esclans Rock Angel Cotes de Provence Rosé 2020
With its magnificent pale pink colour and golden glints, this wine reveals fine tangy red fruit and toasted aromas. It is fresh and unctuous in the mouth with great length, resulting in a wine with great fullness where the balance between acidity and finesse makes it an essential that just has to be tasted!
Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty five kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast.
Rock Angel rose is an iconic Provencal rose from the Esclans house. Pushing the envelope of Provence Roses. A combination of Grenache and Cinsault with some Syrah and Rolle (AKA Vermentino) grapes from the best vineyard areas of La Motte en Provence. How does a rosé escape boundaries, between being a superb aperitif and a fine wine that enjoys the versatility of being successfully paired with a broad range of fine cuisine? If you serve it, they will come.
