Description Château d'Esclans Whispering Angels 2021.

This is a Côte de Province wine from Château d'Esclans located near the Pennafort gorges 25 kms northwest of the ancient Roman city of Fréjus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the Château site date back to Gallo-Roman times, and Château rests on very ancient cellars.

The vineyard extends over 140 hectares of vines planted mainly with grenache, vermentino, cinsault, merlot, mourvèdre, rolle, syrah and tiborene. Some of the vines on the highest slopes are up to 90 years old.

Whispering Angel is made from Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino grapes selected during the harvest on the finest soils of Provence, harvested at night and in the early morning to avoid oxidation.This is a free-run wine and from the best presses.

La robe pale pink is very clear and brilliant.

On the palate as on the nose: lots of citrus fruit intimately linked to white flower fragrances. Fine touches of red berries such as burlat cherry or blueberry.

Dining and wine pairing: this is a festive wine, especially as an aperitif, to be served at around 8°C with shellfish, Marennes-Oléron or Belon oysters. Goes very well with seafood grilled a la plancha, such as line-caught sea bass, salmon steaks, cod fillets flavored with ginger and Espelette pepper, or red mullet or sea urchin from the Mediterranean creeks.
