Château d’Esclans - Domaines Sacha Lichine
Côtes de Provence

Grenache, Rolle

"Offers a mix of lovely nectarine, peach and tangerine hints, with echoes of sandalwood and bergamot carrying through the long, detailed finish. A suave, creamy feel echoes throughout. Very flattering, showing serious range and length. Grenache and Rolle. Drink now. –JM" (91 points, Wine Spectator)
