Chateau d'Esclans has rather taken the world of rosé wine by storm, their superb portfolio of wines from the sun-kissed vineyards of Provence starting modestly at under £10 per bottle, but their most ambitious top of the range cuvée selling for upwards of £70 per bottle - now that's quite something for a rosé wine!

My first visit to France was as a teenager, my first stop the Loire, launching a love-affair with this most understated part of the country with its opalescent light, its cuisine and its wine, and these three elements - the place, the food and the wine - are a part of me, which is why I relish any chance to talk about them and spread the word.
