Whispering Angel Rosé 2020 (Half Bottle), Château d'Esclans
Everything about Whispering Angel is perfection most importantly its taste; dry, crisp - a wine of beautiful balance and gentle aromatic flavours. It sings of the sun and everything we are all looking forward to.
The 2020 vintage is yet another step up in the history of this remarkable rosé, now a global super star, and the benchmark against which all other rosés are judged. During the harvest, all the grapes were picked at night to preserve freshness and flavour after a near perfect growing season.
Vibrant pale pink wild salmon colour. Very fresh with strong yet restrained aromatic flavours berries and white summer fruit. Good acidity and balance with a mouth watering finish that begs for another glass. It made a cold and gloomy Leicestershire January day seems like Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in June for a couple of hours. Exciting.
