Garrus, Rosé, 2014

  Château d'Esclans

Garrus, Rosé

Complex, vinous, silky sleek and persistent. With rock salt and white peach alongside cherry, white flower, mandarin and rose petal this bar-raising rosé from Sacha Lichine is as pleasing and moreish as it is interesting. Rich and fluid yet elegantly constructed with complex minerality, it demands food yet is almost irresistible without – is this the greatest rosé being made today? It seems entirely likely…we’ve certainly never tasted anything like it.

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Cotes de Provence

Côtes de Provence AOC is the largest appellation of the Provence wine region in south-eastern France. It covers roughly 20,000 hectares of vineyards, which produce the vast majority of Provence's rosé wine. Although it also covers red and white wine, about 80 percent of Côtes de Provence's output is rosé. This is made predominantly from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsaut grape varieties plus the quintessentially Provencal red grape Tibouren.
