 Sacha Lichine, Bordeaux to Provence 

Caves d’Esclans is the creation of Sacha Lichine, owner of the infamous Chateau d’Esclans located in the Cotes de Provence. Born in Bordeaux, Sacha Lichine began working at his family’s property, Chateau Prieure Lichine, during the summers of his childhood. A defining moment in Sacha’s career was when he ran Chateau Prieure Lichine at the young age of 27.

In 1990 Sacha started Borvin, a wine merchant business, which he still operates. He focuses on creating a selection with the best wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy. He recognized the importance of innovation in the increasingly varied wine industry. Sacha developed a line of new world wines from France, Sacha Lichine – Vins Sans Frontieres which today consists of a selection of growers and wines crafted throughout the regions of France. Since his 2006 acquisition of Chateau d’Esclans in Provence, he has poured his talent and know-how into this magical terroir. The result is a world class brand and taste.

International acclaim for his wines, combined with his tireless efforts have also contributed to the unprecedented growth of the rosé category.

Whispering Angel, Caves d’Esclan’s exceptional cuvée

Whispering Angel Rose Caves d'EsclansThe two cherubs on the Whispering Angel chapel, which date back to the early 19th century, are the inspiration behind Whispering Angel. A blend of primarily Grenache, Rolle (Vermentino) and Cinsault grapes, this delicate Cotes de Provence Rosé is vinified under the watchful eyes of Sacha Lichine. Demanding perfection at every step, the grapes are harvested from sunrise to noon then rigorously sorted. The grapes are sorted visually, in order to maintain a standard of highquality wines. The free run and pressed juices are vinified in stainless steel tanks and undergo a “batonnage” two times per week.
