This month a few things caught my eye, from attractive cuffs that secretly host a timepiece to wristwatches that are so beautifully crafted to honour nature. But of all of them, one stood out; 2020 Chateau d’Esclan Cote de Province luxury Rose wine. I had one sip and beckoned the sommelier to tell me a little more about it. As it turns out, it has been acquired by Moet et Chandon Wine Estates.
Why wasn’t I surprised to hear that? I have never been a fan of anything in the rose family, but this one had my heart the minute I nosed it. The aroma first hit me, and it was absolutely refreshing with flavours of peach and passion fruit. You might sense something else if you decide to try it.
I found that it had the perfect balance of acidity with a somewhat creamy and rich spicy note. He(the sommelier) agreed with me. I didn’t get all the flavour. I must say it gave the impression of Champagne, too; so for all the C, I promise this one will rival any prestige Champagne. You must try it; I didn’t guess all the aromas and flavours correctly, but you just might when you visit The Wine Lab.
