2021 Whispering Angel, Château d'Esclans
As a long standing supporter of Whispering Angel, we have just received a special parcel of their new 2021 vintage from Château d'Esclans at a reduced price. Although Whispering Angel is undoubtedly a true global brand, current distribution issues such as there are in parts of Eastern Europe and Asia have led to a minor surplus in their corresponding global allocations which were now lucky enough to have been offered.
Matthew Jukes, our friend and wine reviewer, has got his hands on a bottle and reckons it is one of the best ever, even saying it is "a more sophisticated wine" than the 2020 - "In 2021 there is a wonderful backbone to this wine from which the fruit is carefully draped. With the trademark watermelon and pomegranate hints and a deeper and more structured mid-palate than was found on the lithe 2020 this is a more sophisticated wine than its crowd-pleasing predecessor. This, in turn, means that it is a foodier proposition, too, which is great news. So, my very first 2021 Provence Rosé is set to, once again, wow all-comers."
Whispering Angel is recognised as one of the finest rosés in the world. This is supported by the vast array of awards and exceptional press the wine has received (with a few examples featured below). No detail or expense is spared in the production of this rosé ensuring that the wine in your glass delivers on the excellent reputation that it has built over the years.
- Johnny Wheeler, Chairman
Very, very pale bright pink that unleashes rose petal aromas. Lip-smacking soft summer fruit flavours abound with just the slightest hint of violets in this scrumptious new vintage of Whispering Angel. It is crisp, clean and fresh. A great rosé in all respects from Sacha Lichine and his team.
