Wine of the Week: 

Whispering Angel Rose Provence 2012


Winemakers Notes:

Pale salmon in colour, this is delicate and fresh with plenty of crisp strawberry fruit and a long finish. The new benchmark for Provence rose. 73% Grenache, 9% Cinsault, 8.5% Syrah, 5.5% Mourvedre,

Chateau d’Esclans is found nestled in the depths of Provence about half an hour north of St Tropez. New to Bibendum’s list, these Rose wines come recommended highly by Jancis Robinson, “the best pink wine to have come my way”. -Jancis Robinson
Winemaker Sacha Lichine (son of Alexis Lichine) is at the helm of this gorgeous property in Provence. This is a blend of Grenache, Rolle, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvedre vinified in temperature controlled stainless-steel vats without barrel fermentation to keep the freshness and all the vivid berry fruit flavors.
