Château d'Esclans Rosé Blend Côtes de Provence Rosé Whispering Angel 2007

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/48326 for £10. The Cotes de Provence is a large AOC created in 1977 although wine production in the area goes back to before the Romans covering 85 communes in eastern Provence. There are many and varied terroirs ranging from the coast up to the foothills of the Alps.80% of production is rose although there are reds and whites. Chateau D'Esclans is located about 20 miles north of St Tropez just south of Draguignan close to the village of La Motte.It was bought by Sacha Lichine,who previously owned Chateau Prieure-Lichine in Margaux in 2006 and together with his winemaker Patrick Leon they now run the estate. Whispering Angel consists of 80% Grenache with the rest made up of cinsault, syrah ,mourverde and rolle,this last grape being known as vermentino in Italy and elsewhere.I started my bottle last night with my supper of baked fish and I enjoyed it.It is a pale salmon pink in colour.It is a dry wine .There is some melon like fruit taste with a hint of citrus but it is really quite mineral.It is not as fruity or flavoursome as the last rose I had the Les Bastides de Sainte Marie Cotes de Provence but it was quite drinkable and good value for money
