    Winemaker Notes

    Whispering Angel is the introductory wine to the Chateau's line of Rose. Noted for its fresh, fruity yet bone dry characteristics, Decanter magazine suggests of the '08 vintage that this is probably the most aptly named wine we've tasted this year, a wonderful acknowledgement unto itself.

    Chateau d'Esclans, Provence, France
    2009 Whispering Angel Rose
    Also enchanted by the Provence his father speaks of with emotion, Sacha Alexis Lichine, convinced by the potential of these sun-drenched soils, become the owner, with the Angostura group, of Chateau d'Esclans in 2006. Since then, he hasn't ceased to combine his talent and know-how to this magical terroir, and has given a new dimension to Provence Rose, making a unique assemblage of refinement and pleasure. A new chapter has begun in the world of Rose.

    Patrick Leon has unparalleled experience in making among the great wines of the world.

Patrick's wide breadth of experience and knowledge has established the foundation to becoming a consulting oenologist and working with Sacha Lichine in this capacity. Towards that end, Patrick has been instrumental in overseeing the wine making for Chateau d’Esclans. Patrick Leon's guidance and his enduring counsel have made an immeasurable difference to making all the Lichine wines as great as they are.

    Provence

    View all wine

    More than just a European vacation hotspot and the rosé capital of the world, Provence is a coastal, southeastern appellation of France increasingly producing interesting wines of all colors. The warm, breezy Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing and the diverse terrain and soil types allow for a variety of wine styles within the region. Adjacent to the Rhône Valley, Provence shares some characteristics with its northwestern neighbor—namely, the fierce Mistral wind and the plentiful wild herbs (such as rosemary, lavender, juniper, and thyme) known as ‘garrigue.’ The largest appellation here is Côtes de Provence, followed by Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

    Provence is internationally acclaimed for its dry, refreshing, pale-hued rosé wines which make up the vast majority of the region’s production. These are typically blends, often dominated by Mourvèdre and supplemented by Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, and other varieties. A small amount of full-bodied, herbal white wine is made here—particularly from the Cassis appellation, from Clairette and Marsanne. Roussane, Sémillon, Ugni Blanc, and Vermentino (known locally as Rolle) are also used for white wine throughout Provence. Perhaps the most interesting wines of the region, however, are the red wines of Bandol. Predominantly Mourvèdre, these are powerful, structured, and ageworthy wines with lush berry fruit and savory characteristics of earth and spice.
