Sacha Lichine’s style-creating wine, the pioneer of the rosé renaissance, which has been made from three varieties (Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino) from the beginning. The harvest begins at sunrise and ends the latest at noon in the windy Provence vineyards. Then there’s optical sorting at the winery, followed by destemming and pressing, all at 7-8 degrees, keeping the harvest’s aromas and flavours in the must. The character of the wine can be misleading – despite the full mouthfeel, Whispering Angel is made exclusively in tanks, with occasional stirring of the fine lees. Its colour is appealing, the structure of the wine recalls great white wines, while the overall picture is still about rosé, with a proportional, fine-structured and thirst-quenching palate. This is what the 15th vintage of the Whispering Angel is like.
Buy a several hundred year old chateau in Provence in a classic rosé producing area. Respect the old vines and the traditional varieties. Work with one of the world's most famous oenologists (grape grower-winemaker). Be open to new technology, but buy wooden barrels. Try to make the best rosé in the world and don't bother about people thinking you're nuts. In a nutshell, this is the story of Sacha Lichine and Chateau D'Esclans, written since 2006.
