Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A perennial stunner of Provence, a region renown for for top notch pink wine. Exquisite strawberry, peach, peach blossom, wet stone, and lavender nose. Dry, crisp, and admirably full bodied. Long finish of white cherry and peach while the acidity keeps the mouth watering. Beautiful with a charcuterie spread on a warm, sunny afternoon.
Michael O'Shaughnessy rated this wine as 95/100
Tania Thomas 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.

Monique Sosa 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
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 :-)

Natalie's Review

Caves d'Esclans Whispering Angel Rosé 2016, Côtes de Provence A.C., France: 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. Drink: 2016-2018. 325076 13% XD 750 mL  $27.95 Score: 92/100. April 4, 2017 Top Rated Rosé Wine.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
