Chateau D’Esclans Whispering Angel Rosé 2017

This is one of the rosés whose name seems to be on one everyone’s lips if not the wine itself. This is one of Chateau D’Esclans bevvy of pinks from Provence, a region which is seeing a surge in popularity. A region that is known for its lavish summer lifestyle, beaches, lavender fields and its pale, dry pink wines.

Whispering Angel is the palest of ballet pinks. It is a quite traditional blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle (Vermentino), Syrah and Tibouren. That Rolle gives the strawberry and raspberry fruit a stonefruit dimension. Some lees stirring adds spice notes, silk to the texture and some additional fruit weight while using only stainless steel means that the fruit is kept fresh and pure.

A delicious, dry rosé wine that will work well with food or just shared with friends.  Its label is attractive enough, and has been known, to grace even the finest tables.
