About this wine
This is Rolls Royce rosé - every sip is worth the hype.
We could go on and on about the little details which combined make this rosé the ultimate pink. From the premium quality grapes, which are grown in the 'Beverly Hills' equivalent of La Motte en Provence, the optical sorting which ensures ripeness, the light crushing and fermentation in stainless steel to the twice weekly batônnage to give generous texture and creaminess.
What Makes It So Grape?
Produced in Cote de Provence, France
Whispering Angel receives the crème de la crème of winemaking. After a cool, early morning harvest, the grapes are gently crushed before the free run and pressed juice are vinified (made into wine) in stainless steel tanks. A little bit of fancy batônnage (stirring) is done two times a week to help give the wine more body and texture. You can also thank the batônnage for the creaminess, too. Bottled and packaged in stunning clear glass bottles, this little angel is delivered to us and then on to you.
When it comes to rosé, Provence changed the game. A global phenomenon, the pale pink, dry, herbal and fresh style of wine has become not only one of the best selling products in the world but it has set the trend that other wine producing regions have followed. Historically, there were styles of rosé that were deeper in colour and slightly sweet - but today - you'd be hard pressed to find much darker than pale that isn't pretty dry. The success of Provence rosé has also been super charged by the presence of big, flashy brands (Miraval, Minuty, Bijoy - to name a few).
