Chateau D'Esclans Whispering Angel Magnum
PRODUCER: As a negociant and vinificateur (winery), Caves D’esclans identifies vineyards, grapes and wines from Château D’esclans as well as local growers to make what has reputedly become the world’s greatest rosé. As our objective is to obtain the best quality grapes and wines, we have created relationships with the local grape growers, committed beside Caves D’esclans, whose vineyards are treated with the same high standards of quality as are the vineyards of Château D’esclans.
WINEMAKING: Grapes are grown in some of the most choice land in the surrounding region of La Motte en Provence, consisting primarily of Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle, Syrah and Tibouren. Harvested between sunrise and noon with optical grape sorting. Destemming and slight crushing at 7-8 degree to avoid oxidation. Both free run juice and pressed juices are vinified in stainless steel. Batonnage is twice weekly in temperatire controlled vats.
TASTING NOTE: As you get ensnared by its sensuous charms, the siren-like fresh aroma and notes of citrus and pink grapefruit are only bettered by its smooth and creamy feel on the palate. The flavour is complex, with layers of fruity flavours; testament to the Provence region it comes from. This is on account of the mixture of Grenache, Rolle, Syrah, Tibouren and Cinsault grapes it has been made from.
