Chateau d'Esclans

Located in Cotes du Provence · France

The beautiful Château d’Esclans is in an enviable position in the heart of Provence, northeast of St Tropez and with views over the Esclans Valley and towards the Mediterranean coastline in the distance. 

When founder Sacha Lichine acquired the property in 2006, his vision was to be part of the ‘rosé renaissance’ and create the world’s greatest rosé wines. He was joined by founding winemaker Patrick Léon, who brought with him many years of international winemaking experience and innovative winemaking techniques that transformed the style of rosé wines being produced here.

The result was a world-class portfolio of rosé wines notable for their complexity, depth and elegance. The wines can now be found in more than 100 countries around the world, providing a refreshing accompaniment to all sorts of situations. Star performer Whispering Angel has become a global reference point for Provence rosé.

The current winemaking team is led by Bertrand Léon, following in his father’s footsteps and maintaining his legacy.
