TASTING NOTES
The top of the range among Sacha Lichine’s rosés, Garrus offers a uniquely vinous, savoury style. Toasty and floral aromas precede a powerful, though never heavy, palate. Despite the mouthfilling texture, the wine retains remarkable focus and structure.

PRODUCER

Caves d’Esclans is the brightest new star of the Côtes de Provence. Established in 2006 when Bordeaux-born Sacha Lichine bought the Château d’Esclans, this dynamic producer harnesses both the château- grown grapes and fruit from local growers to create a stunning range of highly sought-after wines. Patrick Léon, the former winemaker at Mouton- Rothschild, oversees production.

VINEYARD
The grapes come from specially selected plots at Château d’Esclans, where the estate’s oldest vines grow on south-facing chalky-clay slopes. Harvesting only took place between sunrise and noon to avoid picking in the hottest part of the day.

WINERY
The grapes were sorted three times, both electronically and manually, before destemming and a light crushing at 7-8oC. The wine was made from ninety percent free-run juice and ten percent first pressing, and vinified in new and second-fill 600-litre oak barrels for ten months, with twice weekly batonnage.

AWARDS & PRESS
“Distinctive, with mango, peach and melon notes forming a weighty core, while orange zest and jicama flavors keep this defined and honest. The long finish has good drive.” – 91 points, Wine Spectator, September 2015
