Château d’Esclans

Château d’Esclans

Château d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, near the Gorges de Pennafort, 25 kilometers from Fréjus on the Mediterranean coast. The first archives of the Castle date from the time of the Gauls, it was then used as a monitoring point for controlling the intruders who entered by boat in the Gulf of Fréjus The present Castle, inspired by the design of the Tuscany Villas, was built in the middle of the 19th century. Château d’Esclans is located in the center of the Department of Var, where the majority of the rosé wines of AOC de Provence are produced. From 1955 to 1994, the Perraud family owns the estate. The Château was later bought by a Swedish pension fund that produced small quantities of wine and sold the remaining grapes to neighboring winemakers. In 2006, Sacha Lichine, the current owner of Russian origin, acquired the Château d’Esclans, which now has 44 hectares of vines. This winemaker studied in Bordeaux before upsetting the world of wine and offering prestigious and expensive “luxury“ rosés. Garrus rosés and Clans share the top of the bill with aging in oak barrels, a blend of Grenache and Rolle. Sacha Lichine’s desire is to produce high-end rosés, often approaching in their texture and their aromas of large whites, finely wooded. Moreover, we often hear about the Château’s rosés but the whites and the reds, the “Déesse“ cuvées, are among the best in Provence. Robert Parker says the Château produces dazzling rosés. “This estate in the Côtes de Provence produces pink dazzling“ - Robert Parker (The Wine Advocate) Grenache and Vermentino are the main varieties cultivated on the property. The vineyard also produces Cinsault, Merlot, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Tibouren. The Château is known for its old Grenache vines which produce grapes of better concentration and flavor than the younger vines. Among the wines of Château d’Esclans, 12bouteilles.com selected red wines of character; Déesse Rouge 2015 et S clan Rouge 2015 and also Déesse Blanc 2015, a generous white wine. Obviously, we did not miss the great rosé wines of the Châteaux; Clans 2015, Garrus 2015 and Whispering Angels 2016, luxury rosés by excellence.
