The New Whispering Angel
Coming from the Whispering Angel family, Rock Angel is transparent pale in color and has delicate red berry aromas on the nose. On the palate, it has floral notes with a touch of spice; complemented by a long, dry finish. With greater intensity and more richness than Whispering Angel, Rock Angel is a food-driven wine that will pair well with a variety of hor d’oeuvres and entrees.
Originating from Château d'Esclans, a prestigious estate and winery in Provence, France producing some of the finest and top-selling rosé wines in the world. Château d’Esclans celebrates its 10th anniversary vintage of its flagship Whispering Angel under the leadership of Sacha Lichine, who has elevated these wines to the premium, prestigious level he envisioned for Provence rosé.

There's nothing quite as enticing as these crispy, yet chewy, French pastries. Hopefully you already waited in the infamous Ladurée line to pick up a box for your friends, otherwise you may want to postpone your holiday festivities. Atleast with the Summer heat François Payard offers a macaron ice cream sandwich to keep you cool, go ahead and grab one (or five).
