Situated a few kilometres from the ancient Roman port of Fréjus, the château's foundations are, in fact, the oldest in the region, dating back to the twelfth century. The current château is relatively newer but exceptionally beautiful, a Tuscan villa-inspired, pastel-washed building that wouldn't seem out of place as the backdrop of a Wes Anderson film.

The modern tale of Château d'Esclans and their ascent to rosé supremacy, however, commences in 2006 with the acquisition of the estate by Sacha Lichine. Born into a Bordeaux wine family, which included a man (his father, no less) known as the 'Pope of Wine,' Sacha nonetheless received his education and much of his early grounding in the industry in America. He returned to manage his family's estate in Margaux at the ripe age of 27.

After establishing negociant companies and producing wines under his own name, Sacha's attention was drawn to Provence, and the potential for rosé wines in the region, in particular. He acquired Château d'Esclans.

At that time, the château primarily sold its fruit and produced only a small quantity of wine under its own label. Lichine transformed this situation, with a focus on crafting the finest rosé possible. The results speak for themselves - today, the château's most recognized bottling, the Whispering Angel, is one of the most popular and sought-after wines globally.

Unsatisfied with that, Château d'Esclans also embarked on a mission to demonstrate that still rosé could be more than a poolside tipple and could, in fact, evolve into one of France's finest wines. The outcome is Garrus. Made from Grenache vines approaching a century of service - some of the oldest in the country - and aged for eleven months in oak, this is as a serious and robust rosé as has ever been created.
