Highly approachable and enjoyable with a broad range of cuisine, Whispering Angel is a premium rosé that you can drink from mid-day to midnight. 

3) Champagne Laherte Freres Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature: $16 Peter Liem : “It’s perfectly balanced as a non-dosé, its 20 percent of malolactic undoubtedly helping to create a better harmony of acidity, and while there is a pleasing depth of citrus and apple fruitiness, along with hints of dried mango and preserved ginger, this wine is really all about soil and expression of place.” From the family’s chalkiest soils in Chavot and Epernay comes this racy Blancs de Blancs with fantastic finesse, the only one in the Laherte lineup. Galloni called the Laherte “stunning,” praising it as “nuanced to the core.” Wine Advocate called it “beautifully pure.”
