Natalie's Score: 90/100

The Grenache and Vermentino wine grapes for this zesty vintage are hand-harvested from Chateau d'Esclans' vineyard. Grapes are manually sorted, destemmed and then gently crushed with no maceration, with the free fun and first pressed juice partially vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel tank and 600 litre barrels or demi muids. Pretty pale pink in the glass, dry, with wild strawberries, red berries flavours on the palate, finishing lightly spiced and zesty. Promises of summertime.

Rosé food pairings: roast turkey, grilled chicken salad, feta and goat cheese salads.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Château D'esclans' Rock Angel rosé 2017 is produced by Domaines Sacha Lichine. Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino) wine grapes are sourced from the Provence wine region. Lovely Rainier cherry, white stone fruit flavours on this medium-bodied dry rosé finishing with a zesty acidity for food. Château D'esclans dates back to the château's site date back to the 1940s when its location served as a lookout point into the Gulf of Frejus. Chill and enjoy now. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
