Rock Angel Rosé 2018


“Remarkably sophisticated.” – The Spectator

As well as being loved by the critics, Rock Angel 2018 was awarded a massive 98 points and crowned a “Master” at The Drinks Business’ The Global Rosé Masters 2019. So this might just be the finest rosé of the season.

Rock Angel is another iconic rosé from Caves d’Esclans, the estate that brought you Whispering Angel and the phenomenal Garrus. Stylistically, Rock Angel sits between those two great wines. It’s made by Bertrand Léon, who took over from his father Patrick Léon, the former winemaker at Château Mouton Rothschild. The grapes come from old vines in La Motte en Provence, these are partly fermented in stainless steel and partly in oak barrels, the latter adding texture, body and great roundness. Tangy redcurrant and wild strawberry mingle with lemon cream, toasted almonds, refreshing pink grapefruit and a pinch of black pepper. The additional weight and elegance makes this a fabulous food wine, so drink it as an aperitif with nibbles, or alongside seafood, grilled artichokes, poached salmon or barbeques. However, just like all of the other wines from Caves d’Esclans, all Rock Angel really needs is sunshine.

The history of the blue-shuttered and hydrangea-surrounded Château d’Esclans dates back to the 12th Century, but Sacha Lichine of the famous Bordeaux family revolutionised the estate in 2006 when he turned the focus on to premium rosé. Now its monumental Provence rosés are household names and quite simply must-haves.
