Known across the globe as the reference for Provence rosé, Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence 2021 is now available in stockists and restaurants across Ireland. Whispering Angel has come to rule the Provence rosé category and was first created by Sacha Lichine following his acquisition of Château d’Esclans in 2006. He continues his vision to create the greatest rosés in the world with this new vintage.
Pretty aromas of lavender, rosehip, strawberries, cherries and cloves have produced a medium-bodied wine with crisp acidity and a supple creamy palate. Whispering Angel Cotes De Provence 2021 is a perfumed and elegant wine to be enjoyed now.
Grapes grown from some of the most highly desired land in the surrounding region of La Motte en Provence, consisting primarily of Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino, were harvested from sunrise to noon. Sorted optically by expert eyes, they were destemmed and slightly crushed at 7-8 degrees celsius to avoid oxidation. Both the free run juice and pressed juices were then vinified in stainless steel. “Bâtonnage”, the french term for stirring settled lees back into wine, was completed twice weekly to provide freshness and texture to the finished product.
Once again, the wine’s pale colour is pleasing to the eye, drawing one into its rewarding taste profile that is fresh and vivacious, while being bone dry with a smooth finish. The 2021 vintage continues to be highly approachable and enjoyable with a broad range of cuisine, a premium rosé that you can drink from midday to midnight.
