Sacha Lichine's Chateau in Provence is a mecca for the delicious rose wine that the region is famous for. The brilliant orange-hued pink colour of this lively wine comes from a careful touch of skin contact as the free-run and press juices are blended together. Grapes are mainly Grenache, Cinsault and a bit of the white grape Rolle (Vermentino) for added pizzaz. The palate is all ripe strawberry, citrus and lemongrass. Well balanced with bright acidity and rich enough to pair up with salmon or even duck. This latest release scored 92 points from James Suckling who said "This is a very perfumed rosé with lilacs, roses and strawberries. Some peach. Medium body with a very tight and tension palate of fruit and acidity. It's bright and lively. Always refreshing and energetic. Dry and delicious. Drink now." Matthew Jukes, gave it 18/20 saying "This is a perfect Whispering Angel and it will appeal from the moment it is poured into your glass until the last sunset next summer."
