Rosé all day … in celebration of 70 years? A new limited-edition bottle of Whispering Angel rosé, released in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, will make that royally doable.

As palace watchers know, the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a multi-day celebration marking her milestone seven decades on the throne, which officially kicked off on Thursday, June 2, is a very big deal. There is, of course, already a prize-winning trifle to mark the momentous occasion, which will be publicly commemorated with parades, performances, pomp and pageantry — not to mention street parties, backyard barbecues and picnic lunches.

Now the Queen’s historic anniversary also has its own special sip: Château d’Esclans, the luxury wine maker behind Whispering Angel, the official rosé of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant, is releasing a commemorative bottle boasting a platinum-embossed label featuring the Jubilee Pageant crown alongside the rosé’s own emblematic angels.

The 2021 vintage French rosé (13% ABV), a Grenache and Vermentino blend aged for three months in Provence, is made to be enjoyed over afternoon tea with “a couple of your best friends,” according to tasting notes. Ideal temperature: 45-50°F for serving, 50-59°F for storage.

Those celebrating Her Majesty’s milestone stateside can order a limited-edition, commemorative 750ML bottle of Whispering Angel 2021 Queen's Platinum Jubilee ($28) via Our Cellar.

Featuring “floral notes with strawberry and cherry,” the pale-pink-hued wine pairs well with “finger sandwiches, summer salads, mini quiches, and berry tartlets,” according to Château d’Esclans.

It also probably pairs nicely with an elegant hat and elbow-length gloves.
