Whispering Angel is not a phrase I would reserve for my two small children and I am sure it isn't a phrase they would reserve for me, therefore it seemed just perfect to serve at our Mother's Day brunch this year. There is something about this beautiful rose whether it being the attractive color or the fresh citrus notes that just scream you can drink me before noon. So we did. And it didn't disappoint. This retails anywhere from $18-$25 and is worth every penny.
From the winemaker: Whispering Angel is today’s worldwide reference for Provence rosé. Made from Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle (Vermentino), its pale color is pleasing to the eye and draws one in. The rewarding taste profile is full and lush while being bone dry with a smooth finish. 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.”
