Located high above the Gorges de Pennafort not far from the city of Frejus in France, Chateau d'Esclans has a rich history. The current chateau was built in the mid 19th century but there has been a structure on the site as far back as Gaullist times. There are a range of grapes grown around the chateau but the primary planting is Grenache, following by Vermentino.
There are also Merlot, Syrah and Cinsault grapes grown as well as other lesser known varietals. The wineries old Grenache vines produce deep, concentrated flavours and the oldest vines date back nearly 100 years. Explore our collection of Chateau d'Esclans wines below.
From 8-year-old Grenache vines. Seems the palest and most orange of the 28s. Slightly more savoury and more obviously garrigue-influenced than Les Clans. Lovely creamy texture and a little bit of lemon cream on the finish. Reminds me of a white burgundy in some ways. Very persistent. 18/2 Jancis Robinson, www.jancisrobinson.com
Pale pink in colour, it has flavours of redcurrant, dried flowers and spices on the nose, with a subtle herbal quality. Dry, with bitter red fruit flavours, it has a firm finish with lingering herbal notes.
