As a negociant and vinificateur (winery), Caves d’esclans identifies vineyards, grapes and wines from château d’esclans as well as local growers to make what has reputedly become the world’s greatest rosé. As our objective is to obtain the best quality grapes and wines, we have created relationships with the local grape growers, committed beside Caves d’esclans, whose vineyards are treated with the same high standards of quality as are the vineyards of Château d’esclans.

Grapes grown from some of the most choice land in the surrounding region of La Motte en Provence, consisting primarily of Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle (Vermentino), Syrah and Tibouren. Harvisting at sunrise to noon. The château is known for its old Grenache vines which produce grapes that offer greater concentration of flavor than do the younger vines. As the elevation to where the lots are situated increases, so do the age of the vines. At the highest elevated lot vines are as old as 90 years.

The grapes which are used to make Whispering Angel are sorted optically. Destemming and slight crushing at 7-8°c to avoid oxidation. Both the frree run juice and pressed juices are vinified in stainless steel. "Batônnage" is twice weekly. Temperature controlled.
