This beautiful salmon-pink Provence rosé has a very pretty scent of crushed strawberries, peach, rose-water and orange blossom. On the palate, it is wonderfully dry and crisp with delicate summer berry fruits balanced by citrus zest acidity and a deliciously creamy finish. A fabulously sophisticated rosé that is perfect for summer picnics or evening aperitif. Whispering Angel is the big name in Provence Rosé. This is typical of the style, light red-fruit and a delightful peachiness with a smattering of that enigmatic "minerality". Too easy to drink Best enjoyed on it's own while listening to Jane Birkin, this also goes brilliantly with Pizza, salty salads and barbecued fish.
Château d’Esclans is owned and run by Sacha Lichine who's original roots were in Margaux in Bordeaux but decided to move his wine making talent to the southern region of Provence and focus on rosé.
The estate makes several cuvee's including Garrus (the most expensive, Suckling called Garrus the “greatest rosé ever) , Les Clans, Rock Angel, The Palm by Whispering Angel and most famously Whispering Angel.
The d’Esclans site is in part what makes these wines so special, the parcel near the Gorges de Pennafort is elevated and has been known for wine making as far back as Gaullist times when in 1201 the then existing Chateau that was gifted to Gérard De Villeneuve by the Comte de Provence.
