About Whispering Angel 2020 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. Destemming and slight crushing, both the free run juice and pressed juices are vinified in stainless steel. Batonnage is twice weekly.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "The wine is ripe, full of strawberry flavors and crisp acidity. A tangy, zesty texture brings in citrus and a touch of minerality. This is an immediately attractive wine to drink now."
James Suckling scored this 2020 92 points saying "Very pale apricot-pink color. Delicate aromas of sliced apple, pink grapefruit, peach, cream and stones follow through to a medium body and crisp acidity. Deliciously creamy and smooth. Drink and enjoy."
