Chateau de L’Escarelle of one of the most prestigious wine estates in the heart of Provence, with 100 hectares of organically certified vineyards set in 1,000 hectares of beautiful woodland.
In the past year this property has made impressive steps to establish itself as a major player of sustainable agriculture in France. In 2016 the estate achieved Haute Valeur Environnementale certification (France’s most stringent environmental certification scheme, level 3), demonstrating their deep-rooted commitment to protecting the natural world. Their vines are planted at up to 500 metres above sea level, hugging the slopes of the Montagne de La Loube and adapting to the estates’ clay and limestone soil profile. The terroir’s distinctive character is perfect for creating highly-expressive, elegant Rosé wines.
Harvested by hand, the grapes are sorted not just once, but twice. The fermentation process is temperature-controlled at all times to help preserve the wine’s flavours and ensure it retains its subtle character, which is enhanced by some ageing on fine lees.
During some building work they uncovered two statues depicting a couple of cheerful cherubs, which has been the inspiration behind the creation of ‘Les deux anges’ (the two angels).
“Pale in colour, this is a rich blend of Syrah and Grenache. Structure and pepper play a part in red-fruit flavours that are still developing” 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
