(at Menier Gallery, London SE1, 19 May 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2022
An approachable but still serious introduction to the range of rosés from Chateau d'Esclans. The nose is quite complex, with a fruit versus savoury character going on. The flavour profile isn't that far off a white wine, with white peach, lemons, limes, blossom and elderflower showing through. The cherry-led finish gives away it's pink nature.
