Highly approachable and enjoyable with a broad range of cuisine, Whispering Angel is a premium Rosé that you can drink from mid-day to midnight.
Created by Sacha Lichine following his acquisition of Château d'Esclans in 2006, his vision was to create the greatest rosés in the world igniting the "Rosé Renaissance." Sacha introduced new and innovative winemaking techniques to Provence which revolutionized the styles of rosés being produced from this region. This led to the creation of Whispering Angel, a world class rosé which presents both ease and accessibility making for enjoyment and pleasure.
As Sacha says, "In the Esclans Valley angels whisper. If you drink this wine, you might hear them… If you visit us, you might see them."
A rosé with lemons, cantaloupe, orange peel and peaches. Just a hit of bitterness. Medium-bodied with hints of tannins. Fruity, yet not over the top. Crispy and creamy. Summer pleasures.
