"This very much errs on the side of being fresh, clean, mineral with a white peach expression. The style has been very closely maintained over the past 70 years, even as the grape sourcing has grown exponentially This is unoaked, vinified in stainless steel tanks, kept chilled at every stage of the process. From a blend of Grenache, Rolle, Cinsault and Syrah. Easy to see why this works so well." Score: 91 Points -- Jane Anson, Decanter
"Last year the Rose category was scooped by the 2014 vintage of Whispering Angel, and I have to say this 2015 is every bit as good. It's a delicate, shimmering, but personality-packed pink with grapefruit and hints of peachiness against riveting acidity in a super-fresh, gastronomic but deliciously quaffable style, and it really is a Provence benchmark." -- Tom Cannavan, The Huffington Post
