This is the most delightful Whispering Angel Rosé, it is an enthralling, silky-smooth release from Château d'Esclans; a winery that has reputedly become known for making the world's greatest rosé.
This vintage is rich with texture, clear, clean, and always delicious. Made from Grenache, Cinsault, Vermentino, Syrah, and Tibouren grown in the vineyards surrounding its La Motte home, this wine is a succulent release filled with character that drinks beautifully from sunrise to sunset. This rosé is great now, but is sure to impress the uninitiated throughout 2018.
YORK: A few roads over from The Cross Keys, is Harkers in Saint Helens Square. It stands where the Roman Praetorian Gate once was, and still retains some of the original structure in the basement. In 1840 the building became the head offices for the Yorkshire Insurance Company, which still be seen engraved into the front of the building.
I read recently that “you belong in three places: the place you grew up, the place where you went to college and the place where the person you love is” and so it’s not surprising that York will always be an important place to me. It was the place where I studied, the place where I took my first graduate job, and it was the city where James and I met. I returned at the start of the month after far too long... You can read some of my reflections on the blog now!
