‘Stunning’ new 2021 vintage Whispering Angel, the world class Côtes de Provençe Rosé from Château d’Esclans has arrived: case of six bottles delivered
Whispering Angel is a reference point for fine Provençe rosé—which many of our rosé connoisseur Members will already know! Its secret is the winemaker, Sacha Lichine, whom Jancis Robinson MW calls ‘the golden boy of rosé’. Full, lush, yet linear and crisp, textured and long—it’s the apogee of fine pink and the stunning 2021 vintage has arrived in the Club Cellar for Members at an exclusive price of only £15.83 per bottle, delivered.
Sacha Lichine bought this now legendary Provençe estate in 2006, with one aim—to produce the greatest rosé in the world. The chåteau lies just north-east of St Tropez, an historic estate dating back to the 11th century. Lichine introduced new techniques in the vineyards and the cellar, meticulously blending Grenache, Cinsault, Vermentino, Syrah and Tibouren, from ancient vines to create a wine that has amazed the critics.
‘Absolutely stunning. Sensational and balanced’, writes Matthew Jukes, who also calls it ‘the most glamorous rose on the planet!’ ‘Fragrant and floral aromas-very inviting. Airy fresh palate that distinguishes good Provençe rosé’, Joanna Simon. ‘Deliciously creamy and smooth,’ James Suckling. ‘Soft, silky and well balanced’, Elizabeth Gabay MW. ‘Remarkable’, The Wine Spectator: the list goes on—and the Club Tasting Panel commend it to Members, particularly at the exclusive Club price!
The 2021 is considered even more sophisticated and pristine than others, with textured berry fruit, rose water and citrus. Serve alone, with fine seafood or delicate vegetarian dishes, this is a world class rosé you will be proud to serve from mid-day to midnight. Grapes: 72% Grenache, 13% Rolle, 7% Syrah, 4% Cinsault, 4% Tibouren. Six-bottle case. Code WA21LV01.
Case of six bottles. RRP £120. CCUK Members £95. Free UK mainland delivery (may be a courier supplement for Highlands and Islands).
