Aldi’s £7 rose wine ‘tastes exactly the same’ as £26 Whispering Angel – and it’s perfect for the heatwave | The Sun
WITH scorching temperatures expected over the next few weeks, many of us will be looking forward to soaking up the last of the summer sun with a tipple in the garden.
And there’s surely no drink more fitting for a warm summer’s evening than a gorgeous rosé.
Even better for wine lovers, one savvy shopper has found an Aldi bottle that tastes exactly like the pricey Whispering Angel Provençal rosé.
The only difference is Aldi’s version will set you back just £7, compared to the £26 price tag on Whispering Angel.
Lucy, who owns her own vino cooler business Partner In Wine, regularly shares her take on the most boojee booze around with her 46,000 TikTok followers.
In a recent clip, she said: “If you love Provençal rosés like Whispering Angel, you are going to want to run, not walk to Aldi.”

The Specially Selected Coteaux De Beziers is created in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, super close-by to where uber-expensive Provençal tipples are made, which explains why it’s so similar in taste to its high-priced rival.
But because it originates just outside of the Provence region, it means you dodge the price premium that producers add to their drinks simply because of where they’re based.
It’s a blend of the exact same three grapes you’ll likely find in a Provence-style rosé – samsó, grenache and syrah – meaning the taste is almost indistinguishable.
“I’m getting this really vibrant burst of red berries,” Kate describes while smelling the vino. “I can smell strawberries, and maybe raspberries.”

After tasting the drink, she had a pretty straight-forward verdict: “Wow.”
“It’s got this amazing crips acidity that you would expect from a Provence-style rosé,” she explains to viewers, and would be perfect to pair with Mediterranean snacks like olives.
And at just £6.99, it’s “a definite add to your shopping list next time you go to Aldi”.
“This,” she concludes, “is Partner in Wine approved. Cheers!”
Viewers flocked to the comments to share their love for the pink tipple.
“Had to get this yesterday and had it last night,” wrote one. “It’s so good, my new favourite.”
“You keep giving away my secrets!” joked another. “I won’t be able to get this one now.”
Many users were glad to finally have an alternative to Aldi’s Atlantique rosé, which took social media by storm earlier this summer with its delicious taste and £6.50 price tag.
It’s constantly sold-out in most stores because it’s proved so popular with wine lovers, who rush to grab as many bottles as possible as soon as it’s restocked.
