Provence and Bordeaux take top spots in rosé tasting

2. Chateau d’Esclans, 2012

chateau d esclansOne notch down from the Provencal producer’s top wine, the barrel-fermented Garrus, the Chateau d’Esclans rosé does without the overt new oak nuttiness of its £70 big brother.

Instead, this rosé displays a gentle smokiness, fragrant fruit and a wonderfully refreshing finish.

It retails for around £20 in the UK.
