A delicate and aromatic Provence rosé by Esclans

The estate

The earliest signs of Château d'Esclans date back to the Roman Empire. At that time, it was an observation post on the Gulf of Fréjus, in order to prevent possible maritime invasions. Built in the 19th century, the current castle has had many owners. Owned by Sacha Lichine since 2006, Château d'Esclans has contributed to the development of Côtes de Provence rosé wines. It has now become a world reference for Provence rosés with its Whispering Angel wine.

The vineyard

On the Côte d'Azur, just a stone's throw from the ancient Roman city of Fréjus, lies the Esclans valley, home to the 44-hectare vineyard of the eponymous château. Between the pine forest and the sea breeze, the varied terroirs are home to 35-year-old vines. They are cultivated on clay-limestone soils and on sandy gravel, depending on the plot. This patchwork of terroirs provides the château’s wines with great and diverse characters.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested exclusively at night and in the morning, to preserve their freshness. Electronically sorted, the grapes are then destemmed and lightly crushed before being pressed. The best free-run juice and press juice are then blended for the fermentation and ageing periods in stainless steel tanks with a regulated temperature.

The blend

Whispering Angel 2020 is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino.

The tasting

Colour

This wine is a delicate rose petal colour.

Nose

The nose is very fresh and blends citrus and ripe red fruit fragrances with utter finesse.

Palate

The palate is seduced by this wine’s roundness and crisp acidity. The palate reveals notes of white peach, mango, cherry, passion fruit and blood orange. A delicate freshness and bitterness of  grapefruit marks a persistent and delicious finish.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve at 8°C.
