As a proud official partner of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, Whispering Angel’s distinctive white label will become a beautifully embossed Platinum shade over the Jubilee celebrations summer period. As the Jubilee Pageant’s official wine, these limited-edition Whispering Angel bottles, which shall be released at Easter time, will proudly display the Jubilee Pageant identity alongside the iconic Angels and scripted brand marque.

This is the brand new vintage of Chateau d'Esclan's Whispering Angel Rose, one the most popular premium roses in the world.

Whispering Angel is today’s worldwide reference for Provence rosé. Made from Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle (Vermentino), its pale color is pleasing to the eye and draws one in. The rewarding taste profile is full and lush while being bone dry with a smooth finish. Highly approachable and enjoyable with a broad range of cuisine, Whispering Angel is a premium rosé that you can drink from mid-day to midnight.

Created by Sacha Lichine following his acquisition of Château d’Esclans in 2006, his vision was to create the greatest rosés in the world igniting the “Rosé Renaissance”. Sacha introduced new and innovative winemaking techniques to Provence which revolutionized the styles of rosés being produced from this region. This led to the creation of Whispering Angel, a world class rosé which presents both ease and accessibility making for enjoyment and pleasure.

As Sacha says “In the Esclans Valley angels whisper. If you drink this wine, you might hear them… If you visit us, you might see them.”

It is a pale coral pink in the glass. Enticing aromas of juicy ripe strawberry, white peach, passionfruit and lemon peel permeate the nostrils. Upon the palate, it appears bone dry. Ribbons of gossamer silk texture and an enchanting slipperiness advance at just the right moment, giving way to charming and refined layers of white peach, cherry, tangerine and citrus, with hints of more exotic spices, passion fruit, and mango. White peach, dried mango, and white cherry all ride out on a wave of honey tinged with sage. Streaked with racy minerality and a lingering river-stone and pink grapefruit blossom aftertaste.

Enjoy Whispering Angel chilled at 8°C, as an aperitif or with grilled fish and shellfish dishes, grilled poultry, soft mild cheeses, salads, berries and stone fruits with fresh cream, Frito misto or charcuterie.

Château d’Esclans is located on an elevated plateau on the Mediterranean coast near the Georges de Pennafort. It lies just 25 kilometres northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus. Enjoyed as an aperitif.
