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. ... More details

Rated 95 by Decanter
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.

This rich, wood-aged wine is just at is peak. The ripe fruit has taken on a toasty edge while keeping plenty of acidity and smooth, red-berry flavors. The aftertaste is full and generous. Drink now.

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
Mainly barrel-fermented Grenache with a small proportion of Rolle (Vermentino), the 2019 Cotes de Provence Rose Les Clans is a pale, coppery wine. Subdued scents of pencil shavings accent notes of peach, pineapple and melon on the nose, underscored by hints of crushed stone. It's broad and generous in the mouth, full-bodied and richly textured—the product of copious bâtonnage during aging in demi-muids—with prominent notes of cedar on the mouthwatering finish.

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

There are few places in the world quite as evocative as Provence, and this relatively small wine region of France has become something of a world leader following centuries of high esteem and ongoing solid, reliable production of truly excellent, characterful wines. The wines from Provence are primarily rosé, made from red wine grape juices allowed a limited time in which to have contact with their skins and seeds, and are generally considered to be amongst the finest rosé wines on earth. Provence also produces big, spicy red wines, and extremely delicate, dry, crisp white wines, too. For thousands of years, the beautiful Mediterranean climate of the region has proven itself to be ideal for viticulture, and the wine industry of Provence remains as strong and consistently superb as ever.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
