Wine Spectator 91 points - Distinctive, with mango, peach and melon notes forming a weighty core, while orange zest and jicama flavors keep this defined and honest. The long finish has good drive. Drink now. 1,200 cases made. -JM  (Sep 30 2015)

Vinous 93 points - Light, bright pink. Potent mineral-laced red berry, blood orange and floral pastille scents, with exotic hints of vanilla and sweet butter building in the glass. Supple, broad and hefty on the palate, offering concentrated citrus fruit and red berry flavors and a building smoky element. Shows the heft and texture of a serious white wine, say a Meursault, with suave floral and raspberry notes lingering on a strikingly long, focused finish. This outstanding wine stretches my definition--and expectation--of pink wine in the best way. This wine was raised in 600 liter oak barrels, half of them new.  (Apr 2015)

Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty five kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. The chateau’s cellar structure or foundation (known today as the oldest in the region) housed an original Chateau that was given by the Comte de Provence to Gerard De Villeneuve, in 1201. The current chateau, inspired by Tuscan Villa design, was built during the mid 19th century. Chateau d’Esclans lies in the center of the Department of the Var, where the majority of Provence AOC rose is produced. The land was occupied as long as 2500 years ago when it was probably used as a lookout point for intruders sailing into the Gulf of Frejus. The original chateau-of which now only the cellar remains-dates back to before the 12th century. In 1201, Gerard De Villeneuve, part of a wealthy family from Marseille, took ownership of the chateau and the majority of the surface area of the Vallee d’Esclans that would eventually be sold off in lots. Two brothers, Sauver Louis Ranque and Francois Alexandre Ranque, were the next to own the chateau, known then as Terre d’Esclans. In 1875, they sold the property to Joseph Toussaint Caussemille, who manufactured wooden matches near Marseilles. In 1955, the Perraud family owned the property until 1994. At that time, it was purchased by a Swedish pension fund that produced a small amount of wine and the remaining grapes were sold to neighboring winemakers. Sacha Lichine aquired Chateau d’Esclans in 2006. Today there are 108 acres (44 ha) of vineyards. The total proprety has 659 acres (267 ha). The primary grape grown on the property is Grenache followed by Vermentino. Other grapes include Cinsault, Merlot, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Tibouren. The chateau is known for its old Grenache vines which produce grapes that offer greater concentration of flavor than do the younger vines. As the elevation to where the lots are situated increases, so do the age of the vines. At the highest elevated lot vines are as old as 90 years.
