2021 Chateau d'Esclans 'Rock Angel' Rose Cotes du Provence
For those about to rock, we “salut” you! This serious rosé is “Whispering Angel” cranked up to eleven with a more complex and structured profile. Full-bodied and layered with an array of stone fruit and spice, this rich, juicy rosé is a stunning value.
It is partially barrel fermented in large oak barrels and made from Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle (Vermentino). This rosé bears a more complex and structured taste profile than Whispering Angel, bringing it into a more premium realm giving rosé lovers a bigger and richer wine that is fabulous as an aperitif or paired with a broad range of fine cuisine. If you like the minerality of a Sancerre, you will love this wine.
A very pure and incisive nose, with refined mineral chalkiness to the fresh strawberry and grapefruit aromas. Again, pure is the word to describe the linear, dry palate, which delivers crisp yet textured acidity, together with elegant, freshly chopped raspberries and strawberries. A truly outstanding rosé here! Drink now.
