Rock Angel is partially barrel fermented in large oak barrels and made from Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle (Vermentino). This rosé bears a more complex and structured taste profile than Whispering Angel bringing it into a more premium realm giving rosé lovers a bigger and richer wine that is fabulous as an aperitif or paired with a broad range of fine cuisine. If you like the minerality of a Sancerre, you will love this wine.
” Benefits from extra time in the Barrel gaining flavour and complexity without loss of freshness. ”
Jonathan Ray (The Spectator)
” Fresh and crisp acidity and very aromatic fruitiness ”
Elizabeth Gabay MW
” A magnificent creation, soaring above the others in terms of structure; balanced with innate elegance. Luxurious, aerial, composed and effortlessly grand… a serious accompaniment to fine food. ”
” Medium-bodied with crisp acidity and a juicy, creamy palate. Deliciously fruity with good concentration and length. ” 92 points.
” The rosés of Sacha Lichine are treated as if their reputation depends on it. The bet has been met brilliantly for this cuvée. It shines with texture and has irresistible finesse. Superb. ”
Jean Aubry (Le Devoir Canada)
” It might be young but there’s a power to this wine. It’s crisp and clean on the nose, and the fruit waits until its needed. ”
Tony Harries (Winefullness)
” A little more soft rock than punk thanks to a little time in the barriques giving a slightly more rounded mouthful “
Patrick Schmitt (The Drinks Business)
