Description

Rock Angel Provence Rose, Chateau D'Esclans, Cotes de Provence, France, 2022 

Grapes: Grenache & Vermentino (Rolle).

"Optical eye" sorting of grapes at harvest, partial barrel fermentation and six months on lees (with stirring) before bottling.

Rock Angel is made from grapes primarily from the vineyards of Chateau d’Esclans itself, in addition to those in the vicinity of the Esclans Valley and nearby in the Cotes de Provence region. Château d’Esclans has been owned and run by Sacha Lichine since 2006 and their jump to world stardom has been truly meteoric!

Producer Tasting Note:

AROMA - Delicate red berry aromas with mineral notes, along with floral hints and a subtle spice.

PALATE - Rock Angel is rich and racy on the palate. The use of partial oak ageing adds a creamy feel and texture to this wine, and the flinty minerality embues it with another layer of complexity.

FINISH - Powerful and elegant. Firm acidity with a long and silky finish.

This rosé bears a more complex and structured taste profile than Whispering Angel bringing rosé lovers a bigger and richer wine that is fabulous as an aperitif, or paired with a broad range of fine cuisine. If you like the minerality of a Sancerre, you will love this wine.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"A rich, dense style of rosé, this has super-ripe fruits. Its combination of red fruits and rich citrus is full bodied. The wine has a tangy aftertaste, adding to the concentration of the wine. Drink now."

91/100 points, WINE ENTHUSIAST, September 2023

"Fans of the hugely popular Whispering Angel may not even realise that producer, Château d’Esclans, makes a whole range of rosé wines costing up to £100 per bottle. This will set you back a bit more than Whispering Angel, but to that wines dry, red-fruited charm and purity, it adds a mineral intensity. There's also a subtle creamy and full texture, partly from fermentation in French oak, in a wine that is Whispering Angel's older sibling, showing that much more gravitas. A delicious rosé and gastronomic too, eat with salmon prepared however your prefer or creamy mushroom pasta or risotto."

92/100 points, Tom Cannavan, January 2023
