Whispering Angel, Château D‘Esclans | Côtes de Provence
Sacha Lichine and renowned winemaker Patrick Leon have achieved something rather unique - their Rosés from Château D'Esclans are almost without doubt the highest quality Rosés made in the World... yes... the World. Domaine Ott used to hold that honour but no longer. Whispering Angel is Sacha's principal Rosé—it is not cheap....but for the quality and sublime pleasure it is extraordinarily good value, or as the Wine Spectator described it....."the perfect piece of a flawless party." This is a first-rate Provence Rosé - Sascha reckons it is the best Whispering Angel that Patrick & he have ever made and the larger bottles are splendid.Start BUY
The Press"Beautiful pale salmon colour and no shortage of personality... Lots of herbal top notes. Bone dry with a certain smokiness. Lots of personality and I think this will probably only get more interesting. Very smooth texture."—Jancis Robinson on the 2009 ‘This is a superb vintage of Whispering Angel.... The faint cherry nuances are delicious and lip-smacking and if you chill it down ice cold I would wager you could drink it from midday to midnight without a care in the world!.’—Matthew Jukes 17/20
Our tasting notesPale pink and dry, with soft strawberry and raspberry fruits, a lovely refreshing acidity and a delicate herbiness.

About ChÂteau d’EsclansThe estate was acquired by Sacha Lichine (previously owner of Château Prieuré-Lichine) in 2006 with a view to creating the best Rosé in the world. He believed that Rosés potential had not been fully realised and enlisted the help of famed wine maker Patrick Leon to prove this. He has since had huge success with his flagship wine the ‘Whispering Angel’ and a multitude of other styles across the category.
