Can You Guess the Rosé Everyone Is Drinking?
During these last few weeks of summer, we’re drinking all the rosé we can get our hands on. And our tastes run the gamut from sweet to dry, and ever-so-slightly pink to full-on strawberry-hued. You can find out more about what we’re drinking, but maybe you’re also curious as to what everyone else is sipping.
We know we were. That’s why we did some digging to find out the most popular bottle of rosé this summer. Can you guess what it is?
The #1 Rosé: Whispering Angel
We weren’t surprised to discover that Whispering Angel is the best-selling rosé of 2016, according to on-demand beverage delivery service Minibar.
First produced by Caves d’Esclans in 2007, the wine has catapulted in both production and popularity. In 2016, the estate will produce approximately 4.6 million bottles, with a hefty percentage of that going to the United States market, where it is unofficially known as “Hamptons Water.”
There’s definitely a “cool” quotient involved here, but the pale pink Provencal wine is also easy to like. The grenache blend is light-bodied and crisp with good minerality and peachy notes. De plus? It comes at a reasonable price point — $20, more or less.
