Blush of sum­mer

Hong Kong Tatler - - Wine -

From Mykonos to St Tropez, Château d’es­clans Gar­rus in mag­num form was the most pres­ti­gious rosé of the sum­mer, even if a bot­tle cost as much as 800 in restau­rants. The blush wine shows the struc­ture and fresh­ness of a top white Bur­gundy, although it is made from old-vine gre­nache planted in hill­side vine­yards in the French ap­pel­la­tion of Côtes de Provence, about a 40-minute drive from the beaches of St Tropez. The 2013 Gar­rus was the vintage on most wine lists and I think it’s the best so far, although 2014 could bet­ter it. 96 points
