The world's dearest rosé, vinified like a fine Burgundy. More info

Considered the world’s most expensive rosé, this little gem is crafted with as much care as a fine Burgundy and is well worth your attention! This exceptional cuvée was created in 2006 and has been given accolades ever since, with James Suckling calling it ‘the greatest rosé ever’. The best parcels of mature vines are selected for the making of this cuvée, a blend made up mainly of Grenache, Vermentino and Syrah. The harvest always takes place in the morning and the grapes are sorted three times once they reach the winery. They are destemmed and lightly pressed at 7-8°C in order to avoid oxidation. The first-run and press juice is blended with no maceration. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in new demi-muids before Burgundy-style stirring twice a week. This is a gastronomic rosé that will pair wonderfully with your finest dishes. In the glass, you’ll find a pale colour and a bouquet of dried fruit and white flowers. A rosé that is delicately aromatic and deep.

Côtes de Provence Château d'Esclans Garrus Sacha Lichine serve at a temperature of 10°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Pavé de turbot aux asperges , Bouillon de crustacés , Farfalles au cabillaud.
