Whispering Angel 2015 Rose Cote de Provence, Caves D'Esclans
Sacha Lichine's Chateau in Provence is a mecca for the delicious rose wine that the region is famous for. The brilliant orange-hued pink color of this lively wine comes from a careful touch of skin contact as the free-run and press juices are blended together. Grapes are mainly Grenache, Cinsault and a bit of the white grape Rolle (Vermentino) for added pizzaz. The palate is all ripe strawberry, citrus and lemongrass. Well balanced with bright acidity and rich enough to pair up with salmon or even duck. Chosen Wine Of The Week on the Huffington Post. They said "Last year the Rosť category was scooped by the 2014 vintage of Whispering Angel, and I have to say this 2015 is every bit as good. It's a delicate, shimmering, but personality-packed pink with grapefruit and hints of peachiness against riveting acidity in a super-fresh, gastronomic but deliciously quaffable style, and it really is a Provence benchmark."
