Product Description

Chateau D’Esclans, Domaines Sacha Lichine (Provence, France)
Winemaker: Patrick Léon
After his father’s death, Sacha Alexis Lichine sold the family’s fourth-growth Bordeaux property, Prieuré-Lichine (previously known as Prieuré-Cantenac) in 1999. He spent several years in the Côtes de Provence, before settling on a property of some 267 hectares near the town of La Motte, graced with some 44 hectares under old, well-established vines (many up to 80 years of age). Sacha’s intent was never to make just another Provençal rosé. His objective was to produce the very best and most respected rosé in the world – a wine comparable in style and finesse to the great burgundies, but blessed with the freshness and vibrancy of Provence. He enlisted one of the great winemakers of our age, Patrick Léon, whose achievements include 23 yrs as head winemaker for the Mouton Rothschild group, making Opus One in California and the creation of Almaviva in Chile. Success? The world’s wine media think so. The Whispering Angel is a younger fresher style, while the higher cuvees are richer, fuller and boundless in depth. Do not take them lightly!

 

EPITOMIZING ROSÉ THAT IS GREATER THAN EVER AND MORE THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE AS A SOPHISTICATED, FOOD DRIVEN WINE. - winery notes

2011 VINTAGE


“It’s really great that rosé has this kind of wine in the category – something to aspire to.”(RH)
17/20 Jancis Robinson


“The finish unfolds with layers of candied ginger, pineapple and cream that are unctuous and complex. Drink now through 2016.”
93/100 Wine Spectator


“A main course wine with true tannins and grip, this is a veritable ‘iron fist in a velvet glove’ style of rosé…” 
17/20  Matthew Jukes
