            Paul Chevalier,
            a Rosé Master

            Educated in winemaking and viticulture at the University of Reims and the University of Bordeaux, Paul went on to acquire his practical knowledge of wine working for Château Margaux and later with Louis Latour in Burgundy. He was then hired by the LVMH group as the youngest member of the winemaking team at Champagne Veuve Clicquot in Reims as well as the technical advisor for Cloudy Bay in New Zealand. He later worked in Bordeaux for the Seagram Company until joining the House of Calvet as Winemaker & Export Director for North + South America. Today, Paul works Sacha Lichine and Patrick Léon (former winemaker for Château Mouton-Rothschild, Opus One, and Viña Almaviva) in the development of the 4 unique rosés from the Château D'Esclans estate. The Château D'Esclans Garrus rosé (25 barrels produced) is the most exclusive rosé in the world.

Using grapes grown from the most choice land in the region of La Motte en Provence, our Technical Director, Bertrand Leon, explains that the newest vintage is a ‘pale and pure rosé with notes of fresh citrus, rose petal and red fruits on the nose and palate that is round and well-balanced with great acidity and structure’.

With an event-packed summer calendar, whether you’re at the Monaco Grand Prix, Royal Ascot or the Hamptons, the ultimate summer drink will be awaiting you!


            Rock Angel, Sascha Lichine, Chateau d'Esclans, Rosé, Wine

            Rock Angel, the powerhouse wine that rivals any rosé from Provence!

            Rock Angel has a more complex and structured taste profile than Whispering Angel bringing it into a more premium realm, giving rosé lovers a bigger and richer wine. If you like the minerality of a Sancerre, you will love this wine.

            Rock Angel is made from grapes primarily from the Vineyards of Chateau d’Esclans in addition to the most choice Vineyards in the vicinity of the Esclans Valley and nearby in the Cotes de Provence region. Harvesting is conducted in the morning for Estate cultivated grapes and during the night time for sourced grapes. This helps to avoid the heat of the day & to keep the crop fresh.

            Upon arriving in the Cellars, grapes are sorted for both health and quality through Optical Eye Sorting ensuring that the grapes, ultimately selected, are assessed accurately in terms of overall quality. Next is Soft Crushing followed by Temperature Reduction from approximately 20 degrees down to 7-8 degrees to lock in freshness and vivacity. Closed Circuit Pressing is conducted facilitating Minimal Oxidation producing Free Run Juice which is vinified primarily in 600 Liter Temperature controlled Oak Barrels (Demi Muids) in addition to Stainless Steel, Temperature Controlled, Fermentation Tanks during which Battonage is conducted twice weekly over a six month period prior to bottling.

            A rare gem from the heart of Provence.
