This dry Rose from Provence is made by Sacha Lichine, son of Alexis Lichine from Chateau Prieure Lichine of Bordeaux. He worked at this family's former property during the summers of his youth and fell in love with wine. We found pink grapefruit, mint, roses and spices in a fresh, zippy, easy-going style in this offering. The color is a lovely pale salmon and the wine is made of mostly Grenache, with small percentages of Cinsault and a white grape::Rolle (aka Vermentino)n and Rolle.

Whispering Angel was a great wine and food match with crabmeat and shrimp 'skinny' rolls followed by pan seared flounder sauteed in capers and lemon juice along with bok choy in fresh ginger and lemon olive oil. Whispering Angel is dry and easy-to-drink. We first discovered Whispering Angel years ago in Miami at the Fontainebleu where they were serving it poolside by-the-glass. This was long before the Whispering Angel - frenzy of popularity! We are so happy that people love dry Rose!!!

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Cotes de Provence Rose Whispering Angel is a very good effort from this export-focused winery. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Vermentino, and Tibouren, it offers peach and melon aromas along with a plump, medium-bodied palate and a crisp, grapefruit-y finish. Yes, it's a well-known brand, but don't turn your nose up at it, as it represents solid grape sourcing and winemaking.

Wine SpectatorA fresh, juicy and flattering rosé, offering white cherry and raspberry fruit laced with bright acidity and backed by a streak of talc detail on the finish for spine. Drink now.

Wine EnthusiastThis almost white-colored wine is the latest edition of a best-seller. It is full of bold red fruits, crisp with acidity and ripe in character. Balanced and delicious, it's ready to drink.
