Grenache/Vermentino/Cinsault Blend * 75cl * Vegan * 13.5% ABV * Provence, France
"Beautifully pale salmon colour and no shortage of personality. Lots of herbal top notes. Bone dry with a certain smokiness. Lots of personality and I think this will only get more interesting. Very smooth texture." So says Jancis Robinson. And our friend, Matthew Jukes writes: "The colour is the palest coral pink. The texture is fast-becoming a d'Esclans hallmark - gossamer silk with magical slipperiness offset with tangy, citrus pink grapefruit notes and cool, river-stone minerality. 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."
This beautiful Provencal rosé is a staff favourite - no wonder as this pale pink, dry wine with a hint of strawberries and raspberries is described as the Dom Perignon of rosés. It's a lovely, refreshing wine with a hint of delicate herbiness making it a good partner to most hard-to-match tomato dishes.
