Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence Rosé 2020
The very latest vintage of the iconic, medal-winning Whispering Angel.
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. Perfect with peppers, garlic dishes, oily fish.
“The French word ‘Caves’ doesn’t literally mean caves, but usually refers to wine cellars – and this world famous rosé comes from one of the finest in the world…” Matthew Jukes.
Chateau d’Esclans’ is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. Now owned by Sacha Lichine, this Rosé is renowned as one of the most stylish, elegant roses the wine world has to offer. A must have in every fashionable watering hole in the Cote d'Azur, this is something to get out around your friends and enjoy!

"I have just tasted the very first bottle of 2020 Whispering Angel Rosé and it is sensational. The haunting, canteloupe-tinged aroma, silky texture and bracingly dry finish mark this as a stunningly balanced vintage. Chapeau!" Matthew Jukes (19.12.2020)
