A Cotes de Provence rosé from a sublime vintage

Since its creation in 2006, when Bordeaux's Sacha Lichine purchased the Chateau d'Esclans property, Caves d’Esclans has been considered the rising star of the Cotes de Provence appellation.

A Cotes de Provence rosé, the Whispering Angel by Caves d'Esclans is made with a very thorough selection of the region’s very best terroirs, including the Motte, which is situated in the department of Var, in the heart of Provence.

The Whispering Angel Rosé of Les Caves d'Esclans offers a faithful representation of its terroir of origin, blending Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle (Vermentino), Syrah and Tibouren, which is a local grape variety. The 2018 vintage was simply sublime in Provence and optical sorting ensured only the best quality fruit would be used in the final blend. The fruit was destemmed and crushed slightly at 7-8° Celcius to avoid oxydation. The free-run juice and pressed juices were both vinified in stainless steel with batonnage taking place twice a week.

The Whispering Angel 2018 is simply stunning, seducing with its pale pink color and silver reflections. The aromatic palette of this Provence rosé reveals bags of fruit, including both tangy citrus peel and also small red berries, along with a delicate floral fragrance. The palate is bone dry, with a texture that offers plenty of substance without lacking in finesse. A beautiful new rosé to enjoy now.
