Located high in the hills behind the villages of Roaix and Rasteau, Escaravailles dates from 1953 and is in the capable hands of Gilles Ferran, who has built the reputation of the domaine into one of the leading names in the region. Escaravaille, for those of an inquisitive disposition, is the Occitane word for beetle (hence the labels) and also the term once used to describe the black-robed monks of the region, presumably from the Benedictine order.
A lovely white Rhone blend with aromas of pear, white peach and exotic fruits; honeyed notes and acacia flowers. The palate is full, mineral and crisp with fresh white fruit, faithful to the nose. A perfect wine for food and extremely versatile; try with sheep's cheese, Scallops, Crustaceans. Or perhaps try with shortbread, apricot and rhubarb tart, clafoutis with peaches.
