Garrus 2016 from Chateau d'Esclans: a high-quality Côtes de Provence

Garrus from Chateau d'Esclans is a rose produced in the Côtes de Provence appellation. The grapes are selected from the best parcels of the property, where Grenache and Rolle are the planted grape varieties. Harvest took place from sunrise to noon. The grapes were then sorted optically. Garrus 2016 from Chateau d'Esclans is not macerated. It is fermented in demi-muid (600 L barrels), both new and old, for 10 months with stirring twice a week (batonnage). Each container has an individual temperature control.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 70% Grenache for the 2016 Cotes de Provence Rose Garrus comes from the estate's oldest vines. It's barrel fermented with 30% Vermentino, resulting in a toasty, honeyed wine reminiscent of pink grapefruit. It's medium to full-bodied, round and ripe feeling, then finishes long, with echoes of pencil shavings, citrus and melon. It's a paradigm-shifting rosé, but one that resembles an excellent barrel-fermented white wine as much as anything else. I tasted a 2014 at the estate, which left me unconvinced about the cuvée's aging potential.
