AOP Côteaux Varois en Provence

Château de l’Escarelle 2015

€500 Bottle of 10cl

Dégustez un prestigieux rosé à la robe soutenue et aux doux reflets cuivrés et orangés. Le nez libère des arômes floraux de daphnée et d’acacia mais aussi de pêche de vigne. La bouche est ronde et soyeuse, très élégante et d’une grande amplitude. Servi à 11°C, il libérera toute la puissance de ses arômes et accompagnera à merveille une cuisine gastronomique provençale du type pissaladière, des poissons grillés accompagnés d’une ratatouille ou encore d’un tajine de dinde aux abricots secs.

Winemaker

Patrick Lobier

Idyllically located in the heart of 'La Provence Verte', Château de l’Escarelle has undergone a constant process of change and renewal over the years. Patrick Lobier, winemaker at the château for over 20 years now, has witnessed this transformation and devotes his energy to managing the estate with the highest standards of practice. Today, Château de l’Escarelle boasts 1,100 hectares of unspoilt natural surroundings, offering the vines an exceptional setting within which they flourish. Planted on dry-stone wall terraces on gravelly limestone soil, the vine plots hug the slopes of the Escarelle and Montagne de la Loube hills, ascending up to 500 meters above sea level. This range of altitude is one of the vineyard's original features and allows the château to produce highly expressive wines with the sophisticated and unique character that have become Escarelle's trademark.
