The Palm by Whispering Angel was a rip-roaring success last year for us. This new edition to the Château d'Esclans range is bottled in a chic and fun label, and crafted with some of the best grapes from Provence.


The Palm has all the hallmarks of a top quality Provence rosé; light wild salmon pink, fresh, dry, elegant and crisp with terrific subtle fruit flavours. We suggest stocking up for the summer.

About

Pedigrees may be less important in wine-making than they are in thoroughbred racing, but they still matter. Alexis Lichine, Sacha Lichine’s father, was instrumental in introducing wine into the mainstream of American culture. He promoted varietal labelling (without him, we might still be drinking jug wine labelled Chablis or Burgundy). Sacha has taken this Estate onto new heights and Whispering Angel is now the best selling wine in the US over any red or white. The wine is world famous and this is arguably the biggest success story in the rosé wine world, we are thrilled to be releasing the first ever vintage of Whispering Angle's funky and fun baby sister, The Palm.

"It's a ravishing rosé from Sacha Lichine, proprietor of Chateau d'Esclans. Fresh, dry and elegant, with subtle fruity notes and exceptional legnth, it will taste just as delightful with or without a glimmer of sunshine." Sam Wyllie-Harris


"An interesting and perhaps surprising new wine in the extensive Caves d'Esclans line-up, the subtle elegance of thier usual packaging has gone a bit tropical in this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, which has a marginally deeper colour than the regular Whispering Angel bottling, and a little more ripe upfront fruit, even a whiff of banana before small red berry fruit. Dry and elegant in the finish, it is certainly distinct from the pale minerality of the Whispering Angel, but very good." Tom Canavan, wine-pages.com
