This family gorgeous pink wines consists of a beautiful child "Whispering Angel", an excellent mother "Esclans", good grandmother "Les Clans" and glamorous grandmother "Garrus".

Partial fermentation and aging for 10 months in oak barrels adds texture guilt, but does not reduce its refreshing character.
