"EuroCave is key for preserving wines such as Château d’Esclans Les Clans and Garrus, which are oak fermented and benefit from such a system."
Patrick Leon has served as Sacha Lichine’s consulting oenologist at Chateau d’Esclans since the beginning (2006). Ten great vintages later, Leon has overseen Lichine’s vision to make this grand range of award winning rosés with tremendous precision.
Patrick’s pedigree speaks volumes as a world-class winemaker including that of being Technical Manager & General Manager of Chateau Lascombes Grand Cru Classe in Margaux and Chateau Castera in Lesparre-Medoc. Subsequently working for over two decades at Barron Philippe Rothschild he ascended to becoming a Managing Director overseeing Technical winemaking facilities for Chateau Mouton Rothschild, d’Armailhac, Clerc Milon, le Petit Mouton in addition to Opus One in California and Almaviva in Chile (among others).
Chateau d’Esclans’ state of the art wine making facilities were conceived & designed by Patrick and represent a unique and technologically advanced approach to making what is arguably the world’s greatest rose wines. And Patrick’s formidable background coupled with his profound knowledge makes him masterful at blending these fabulous wines which today have a stellar reputation and an enormous following.
