If you think you’ve tasted all that Rose wine has to offer, then think again; for you have clearly not sampled the beautifully decadent charms of Whispering Angel. As it’s name suggests, Whispering Angel has a delicate and silky texture that is truly unforgettable. 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. “As we ease into January, the 2018 vintage of this elite rosé is about to be bottled and shipped and it is a thriller. Sadly, this is the last vintage over which the great Patrick Léon presided, as he passed away in December. Patrick’s winemaking reputation was immense and I can tell you that he was one of the most fascinating, modest and engaging people I have ever met in the wine business. With Château Lascombes, Château Mouton Rothschild, Opus One and Almaviva in his back catalogue, he certainly knew how to make legendary wine. In addition, Patrick helped family friend Sacha Lichine, owner of Château d’Esclans, to make the greatest rosés in the world. He will be dearly missed and his final vintage will be particularly savoured by all who knew him. It follows that this is a sublime vintage for Whispering Angel building on its magical reputation by adding an otherworldly texture to the already ravishing perfume and taste. Indeed the flavour is the embodiment of its name like never before.” Matthew Jukes on the 2018 vintage. There is a reason that the Whispering Angel has been described by some as being the best rose in the world, and this beautiful 2018 vintage will prove this to you.
