Natalie's Score: 92/100

This has been a box office hit at the liquor store every year and sells out quickly. Lovely pretty in pink French rosé with bone dry mouth-watering acidity. Aromas of field strawberries. Surprisingly robust for Provence which tends to be very light. Good balancing acidity and dry finish. Perfect for planked salmon.

Rosé food pairings: marinated olives and chorizo tapas, a charcuterie platter, salmon burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Michael O'Shaughnessy rated this wine as 95/100
Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Most delicate of Provençal rosés, a divine blend of Grenache, Rolle and Cinsault. White flowers perfumed nose with layers of ripe white peaches, wild strawberries, lemon zest and watermelon on the palate. Fruit-forward, crisp, dry and fresh with subtle minerality. Creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Fantastic as an aperitif and a patio sipper. Serve chilled at 7-8 C. Perfectly paired with summer salads and grilled seafood. Tasted August 2017.

Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I think this rose might be the nicest rose we get in the Ontario market aromatically speaking. Beautiful, floral, aromatic, while on the palate it offers classic Provence flavours. $27.......hmmm....you decide value.... I was too busy nosing :-)
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Not in the value ballpark for rosés but gosh it smells divine! A fresh and zesty rosé with intense citrus and wild strawberries notes. It's light bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing. A lovely bone dry rose! Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketstings.ca
Côtes De Provence's Caves D'esclans, Whispering Angel (2016) is a pretty pink French rosé with bone dry mouth-watering acidity. Aromas of field strawberries and surprisingly robust for Provence which tend to give lighter rosé wines. Good balance of acidity to fruit with a lingering dry finish. Château d'esclans has been awarded many accolades in international wine competitions, and it has produced another winner with Whispering Angel rosé. - Community Wine Reviews
