Garrus: The Pinnacle of Rosé

Considered Château d’Esclans’ finest wine, Garrus is perhaps the most exclusive rosé in the world. Entirely fermented and aged in new large French oak barrels, the powerful and elegant Garrus was at the heart of Sacha Lichine’s 2006 vision to make rosé grand. Today Garrus is firmly established as a world-class, iconic, luxury rosé.

Vineyard Excellence

Garrus is made from grapes exclusively from the Vineyards of Château d’Esclans, a high proportion of which come from a single parcel of nearly 100-year-old Grenache vines. Harvesting is conducted in the early morning to avoid the heat of the day and to keep the crop fresh. Upon arriving in the cellar, the grapes are sorted for both health and quality via an optical eye sorting machine, ensuring that they are selected and assessed accurately in terms of overall quality.

Precision in Winemaking

Light, gentle crushing is followed by temperature reduction from approximately 20ºC down to 7–8ºC to lock in freshness and vivacity. Closed circuit pressing ensures minimal oxidation in the free run juice which is vinified exclusively in 600l temperature controlled oak barrels (demi muids) during which bâttonage is conducted twice weekly over an eleven month period prior to bottling.

Tasting
NOTES

Intense peach skin colour, vivid and bright. The nose intrigues with its a delicate intensity and elegance. Displays ripe yellow peach, pineapple, lychee and orange blossom. Delicate oak nuances of vanilla and nutmeg. Great complexity. The palate is multi-layered and is packed with different flavours. Very long, pleasant finish and high quality.

Food
PAIRINGS

A complex yet delicate wine, pair with sole meunière or a lightly seared salmon dish with cherry tomatoes. The wine may also do well with the richness of mushroom risotto or perhaps a roast pork dish that needs a fresher wine to accompany it
