Grenache / Garnacha

Grenache / Garnacha  Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol. As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others). Its flavour usually encompasses the spectrum between raspberry...

Château d’Esclans, Côtes de Provence, Garrus, 2019

When Sasha Lichine bought Esclans is was with the avowed intention of making the world’s finest rosé. Garrus was first released in 2006, and as the Esclans website proclaims, it’s become "a world class, iconic, luxury rosé". Yes – the price is exorbitant, but’s it’s all about pricing power: if you make a rosé which has been acclaimed as the best in the world then you have the ability to set your own price. Based on a single vineyard of centenarian Grenache vines, with some Rolle, it’s crafted like a grand Burgundy: barrel-fermented and then aged for 11 months in new and nearly new large French oak. Now-2023

Here’s a review from Jancis Robinson, who is certainly no automatic respecter of price or reputation:

"Herbily scented and with beautifully integrated acidity and real grip on the palate. Serious wine
with real structure and breadth. Very long and reverberant. It's delicious now…17.5/20",
 Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com, 9th November 2020.

And this is what Matthew Jukes had to say – with a remarkable score

"I sense that Garrus will, one day, be mentioned in the same breath as wines like La Tâche, Latour, Vieilles Vignes Françaises and Le Montrachet. 20+/20".

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
