Do you Whisper or do you Rock?! Two wonderfully delicious Provencal rosés that are amongst the most prestigious in the region.

Chateau d’Esclans is owned by Sacha Lichine (far right above), former proprietor of the Margaux classed growth, Château Prieuré Lichine. Since purchasing the estate in 2006 he has transformed it into a world class brand, consistently making refined, elegant, and completely delicious rosés.

The 2014s received rave reviews from the critics, and we are delighted to offer the Château d’Esclans Rock Angel, a genuinely fine wine which when tasted blind has a distinctly Burgundian characteristic. This is a wine of wonderful texture and elegance. We are also offering the new 2015 release of Whispering Angel, vinified in stainless steel. This is the estate’s flagship wine, packed full of pure red fruit and a fresh, quenching finish and a total winner, year in year out, at Goedhuis.

“At a recent tasting in London during which nearly 40 of the world’s best Rosés were pitted against each other on a blind tasting table … Chateau d’Esclans ’14 Rock Angel was easily the finest and most alluring … [and] proved to me that Rosé can be a seriously fine wine. 18/20” Jancis Robinson MW
