Fermented and aged in large sized oak casks, this is another successful vintage of Les Clans, holding its place in my estimation as the most enjoyable of the 'luxury' rosés. Delicate yet hugely gulpable with traces of rose petal, orange peel, citrus, raspberry and redcurrant. It has the barest hint of oak in terms of satin texture and expansion through the palate, but not getting in the way of a saline kick on the finish. I would add that if the alcohol really is as high as it says on the label it hides it extremely well. I'm including this in the Bordeaux-Provence tasting because of Sacha Lichine's links to Prieuré Lichine (and new partner LVMH has its own presence back in Bordeaux). Drinking Window 2020 - 2024. ...

A fantastic rosé with such intensity and complexity of subtle peaches, citrus fruit, crushed slate, stones and some flowers. It’s medium-bodied with a dense center palate and superb length and focus. Drink or hold.

Vanilla-tinged white peach and mango flavors fill this generous, creamy rosé, along with tangerine zest, brioche, toast and floral elements that bring together the long finish. Drink now. 800 cases imported.
Winery
Epitomizing a sophisticated, food driven wine made from Grenache and Rolle (Vermentino), Les Clans (entirely fermented and aged in large French oak barrels) represents a particular disconnect with rosé in general as it is quite remarkable with potential to age or, if tempted, to enjoy with great pleasure sooner rather than later. This wine is both rich and exotic while being full bodied and elegant.

Region: Provence

Provence is a very special wine region, located in the south of France where the Mediterranean sea meets the beautiful green and rolling landscapes of the mainland. For centuries, the region has been deeply associated with its unique cuisine and characterful wines, which stretch back through history an impressive amount of time. Indeed, Provence can claim to be one of the original French wine regions from the classical age, and its wine culture has been influenced and inspired by a stunning list of different peoples and cultures, who have settled in the stunning green valleys of the region over three thousand years. Today, Provence is most famous for its stunning rosé wines, which have been the favorites of European aristocracy for centuries. However, white and red wines are also made in Provence, and are equally fine and just as capable of expressing this most wonderful of French wine regions.
