Chateau d'Esclans Côte de Provence Rosé 2018
Grapes grown from Chateau d’Esclans’ vineyard, consisting primarily of Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino). Harvesting at sunrise to noon. Grapes are sorted by optical eye electronically and manually three times. Destemming and slight crushing at 7-8°C to avoid oxydation. Free run juice and first slight pressing. No maceration. Both free run juice and pressed juice partially vinified in demi-muids (600L barrels) and stainless steel, both temperature controlled.
“Pure on the nose. Long and finely chiseled on the palate. Excellent balance between freshness and volume.”
