The Palm by Whispering Angel, Château d'Esclans, Provence 2020 (Offered En primeur*)
*Additional charges will apply | Estimated dispatch mid-March
It is Calypso time as we offer the latest vintage of Sacha Lichine's most recent rosé creation, The Palm by Whispering Angel. With a distinct Caribbean feel to it, it is effortlessly chic but with a summery twist. Crafted with the best grapes from Provence - grenache, cinsault, syrah and carignan - The Palm has all the hallmarks of a top quality Provencal rosé, light wild salmon pink, fresh, dry, elegant and crisp, but with a more pronounced tropical fruit flavour than Whispering Angel. Delicious on a hot day!
On a cold English winter's day, turn the heating up, put on a Bermuda shirt, switch on the music, dance and think of Jamaican sunshine and the crystal blue ocean and The Palm, Whispering Angels fun loving little sister.
Our En Primeur offer gives us all this early and exclusive opportunity to buy the 2020 vintage at prices well below its normal retail price when available in March of this year.
Light pink with a tinge of orange. Exotic tropical fruits with a hint of strawberry. Very easy to drink and only 13% alcohol. An all round rosé that everyone will enjoy.
What do the critics say?

"This rosé will have broad appeal for its slippery palate of lemon and fresh flavours and crisp acidity full to the finish." Anthony Garland On Wine
"With a pink label covered in palm trees, its almost as perfect as the rosé itself." Town & Country
"Effortlessly chic and refreshingly approachable." Quest (Society Magazine) New York
"Pure Provence, made for the style-conscious, you get gentle fruit flavours and a good dose of minerality to even it all out." Rachel Fellows (Esquire)
