The appellation of Côtes de Provence covers a wide swathe of Provençal vineyard from Aix east to Cannes. It is renowned for its pale, dry rosé wines, arguably the best known producer is Chateau d'Esclans. This is their second wine and sibling to Whispering Angel.
Sacha Lichine`s philosophy is that "life should be easy to drink!" With this in mind, Whispering Angel have created The Palm; a light, fruity rose with notes of summer berries, watermelon and blossom.
Very fresh with a crisp acidity and a fruity finish.
Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast.
The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. The surrounding land around Chateau d’Esclans is known as La Vallee des Esclans (the valley of the clans). At one point the entire area was part of the chateau’s property and over time was gradually parceled out.
In 2006 Sacha Lichine acquired Chateau d’Esclans beginning a new and exciting history for this remarkable Chateau and the 267 hectares surrounding it. Awarded The Wine Enthusiast`s European Winery of The Year Award for 2014.
