The cuvée “Safranée” of Château Grand Escalion comes from a small parcel selection. Jewel of its terroir, this blend of Syrah and Grenache is a pure pleasure !
"...the 2015 Costières de Nîmes Safranée gives up plenty of ripe plum and blueberry fruit, licorice and pepper in its rounded, mouth-filling personality." Jeb Dunnuck for The Wine Advocate-Robert Parker, 30th Dec 2016.
Serve at 16-18°C (60°-65°F). Ideally open 1 hour prior to serving.
Optimum maturity: 2016 - 2022
Clafoutis with candied black olives
Bull steak with herbs
For this vintage, we have assembled plots of Syrah of about fifteen years, and a Syrah and a Grenache of 30 years.
The 44ha of the vineyard extend on gentle slopes that give their name to the estate. “Escalion” means “slope” in provençal language.
