5. Chateau L'Escarelle 'Les Deux Anges' Rose, Provence 2021
Score - 7.06/10
In a nutshell:
A highly accomplished organic, fresh and crisp Provençal rosé.
The certified organic vineyards of Chateau de l'Eecarelle sit within 1000ha of forest at 500m above sea level, hugging the slopes of the Montagne de La Loube, and have been awarded France's highest environmental certificate, the Haute Valeur Environnementale. This commitment to sustainability and the environment comes through to produce healthy soils, healthy vines, good grapes and good wines! Hand harvested and then sorted twice before fermentation. A classically dry, subtle and elegant rosé with wild strawberry and citrus notes on the nose, leading onto a soft palate with a nice weight, good depth, and notes of mango and pomelo fruit. The finish is long and clean.
When to drink:
A very well made, textbook Provençal rosé that is perfect as an aperitif, or try with grilled fish or vegetables.
