The Book of Rosé: The Provençal Vineyard That Revolutionized Rosé By Whispering Angel and Château D'Esclans
Text by Lindsey Tramuta, Photographs by Martin Bruno
Discover the story behind the award-winning rosé wines from Provence’s Château d’Esclans, which inspired the “rosé revolution.”
Château d’Esclans’s impressive estate extends across 660 acres in the heart of Provence, France. Dating back to the time of the Gauls, vines have grown on its lands for centuries. When its founder Sacha Lichine acquired the property in 2006, he was destined to shake up the wine world: he set out to create the best rosés and to forever transform their place in the collective imagination, from accessible rosés to ultra-premium, luxury wines.
Exquisitely photographed, the never-before-published images showcase the history and spirit of Château d’Esclans. From spectacular images of the vineyards throughout the seasons to an exploration of the wine-making process and the people behind it, this book invites readers to discover how rosé wines come to life, and how they embody the essence of summer insouciance and the Provençal art de vivre. Esclans’s most popular bottles—Whispering Angel, Rock Angel, Les Clans, and Garrus—are icons of contemporary oenology, beloved by celebrities and lauded by wine experts alike. An exclusive look into one of Provence’s most innovative wine-making estates, this is the perfect book for rosé enthusiasts everywhere.
