Whispering Angel & the Chateau d’Esclans Roses
We are delighted to be offering Whispering Angel and the rest of Sacha Lichine's famous rosés from Château d’Esclans.
The weather and maturity of the grapes confirmed predictions of an exceptional vintage. The condition of the grapes was excellent and harvesting began in the first days of September and finished at the end of the month. Patrick and his son, Bertrand Léon, now Technical Director at Caves d’Eslcans, describe the wine as, “Very pale [in colour], with slightly orange reflections and an expressive nose with an abundance of freshness. The palate follows through with citrus notes ‒ fresh but without aggressiveness or acidity. The 2016 vintage of Whispering Angel is balanced, smooth, round and supple, unusually fresh for a rosé and with plenty of minerality on the finish.”
All these Roses are simply the best in their category….
