The Pale Rosé by Château d’Esclans
From the Maker:
"Born in the Var region of Provence, made for a sophisticated rosé drinker and offered at the value level of quality Provence rosés Sacha Lichine has once again redefined the category. Named after its transparent, pink colour, The Pale by Sacha Lichine embodies all the characteristics of an authentic rosé from Provence.
The Pale By Sacha Lichine is made from grapes sourced from amongst the most choice Vineyards in the Vin de Pays/ IGP Var region. Harvesting is conducted during the night time to avoid the heat of the day & to keep the crop fresh. The Pale is vinified in Stainless Steel, Temperature Controlled, Fermentation Tanks, remaining on the lees, in order to give texture to the juices."
About the Maker:
Château d’Esclans, a magical property, is situated in the heart of Provence, northeast of St. Tropez overlooking La Vallée d’Esclans (the Esclans Valley) with the Mediterranean coast in the faint distance. The vision of Sacha Lichine (Founder) with his acquisition of the Château in 2006 was to create the greatest rosés in the world igniting the “Rosé Renaissance”.
Patrick Léon (Founding Winemaker) became an essential part of the project bringing his many years of international winemaking experience to Château d’Esclans. He introduced new and innovative winemaking techniques to Provence which revolutionized the styles of rosés being produced from this appellation. This led to the creation of a world class rosé portfolio from Château d’Esclans including Whispering Angel, Rock Angel, Les Clans, and Garrus: a new generation of rosés characterized by elegance, depth, richness and complexity. Today, Patrick’s son Bertrand currently leads the winemaking team following in the footsteps of his father.
Sold in over 100 countries, these rosés are enjoyed globally from London to the Hamptons, and from St. Barth’s to the Swiss Alps. Whether you are relaxing by the beach, on a yacht, or in the mountains during “après ski”, Château d’Esclans rosés are a light and refreshing accompaniment to any destination. Whispering Angel is today’s worldwide reference for Provence rosé.
