Following the addition of Château d’Esclans to Moët Hennessy’s portfolio of wines and spirits, Edward Dillon has been appointed as the Irish distributor of the Château’s Whispering Angel, Rock Angel and Château D’ESCLANS Collection of wines.
Moët Hennessy, as the majority shareholder, will work alongside Sacha Lichine, President and Founder of Château d’Esclans, who retains 45% ownership and will continue to oversee the estate while managing its future development.
Andy O’Hara, Edward Dillon CEO, commented: “The addition of Château d’Esclans and its enviable range of wines to the Moët Hennessy portfolio is a wonderful opportunity for Edward Dillon. Sacha has helped to revolutionise Provence Rosé wines, creating a high-quality collection which is known and loved across the world. As distributors in Ireland, we will bring increased accessibility and value within the range to Irish stockists and consumers.”
Whispering Angel (RSP €25) is the brand that stimulated much of the rosé lifestyle phenomenon while making an outstanding contribution towards establishing rosé in today’s top shelf drinks landscape. Rock Angel (RSP €40) bears a more complex and structured taste profile than Whispering Angel bringing it in into a more premium space. The Château D’ESCLANS Collection, Château d’Esclans (RSP €44), Les Clans (RSP €71) and Garrus (RSP €120), is the key collection for connoisseurs of Provence Rosé.
The Caves d’Esclan portfolio is available from stockists nationwide including Mitchell & Son, Celtic Whiskey Store, and O’Briens.
