CHATEAU D’ESCLANS – France
The Chateau d’Esclans is the brainchild of Sasha Lichine, who has a mission to produce the world’s best rosés using his property in Cotes de Provence with the help of one of the world’s best winemakers, Patrick Leon, formerly head winemaker at Chateau Mouton Rothschild. He has everything he needs to make great wines at his fingertips: ancient vines, appropriate climate, technical know-how, and the desire and enthusiasm to create delicious wines.
The Château de La Motte-en-Provence is located in the Gorges de Pennafort and has 44 hectares of vineyards. This region is known for its exquisite rosés, which on occasion surpass the quality of white wines, and on rare occasions, this wine included can match the area’s top reds.
