“In the Esclans Valley, angels whisper. If you drink this wine, you might hear them. …If you visit us, you might see them.” This message graces each label of Whispering Angel, a rosé from Côtes de Provence created by winemaker and vineyard owner Sacha Lichine. After acquiring Château d’Esclans—a dreamy estate in Provence—in 2006, Lichine set out to begin what he calls a “rosé renaissance.” Applying innovative winemaking techniques to produce unique rosés, he created Whispering Angel. Just a glimpse at this wine tells you that it’s different from its overly fruity, bubble gum pink counterparts. Whispering Angel is a pale, almost ivory, shade that shimmers in the glass. One sip showcases its full-bodied taste and dry finish. The wine tastes closer to a dry white than a fruity rosé, creating a vino almost all oenophiles can agree upon. The first time I tasted Whispering Angel was at a socially distanced outdoor event. It was an ideal complement to an evening of conversation and connections. I kept thinking about it and purchased a bottle myself, knowing it would be perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner or to cheers the computer screen at a virtual Galentine’s Day event. However you celebrate the month of love, toast with an angel by your side.
