CRITICAL ACCLAIM

96 Points | JS
“This is really something for a rosé. Very powerful yet subtle aromas and flavors of dried strawberry, sliced lemon, mineral and a pinch of salt. Some fresh-herb undertones, such as sage. Hint of coconut. It’s full-bodied, yet so tight and compact with fantastic freshness and length. Goes on for minutes. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling

“As with Les Clans, this is from old vines (up to 100 years old in the case of Garrus), fermented and aged in 600l oak casks. It also shares with a sibling an ability to really deliver an above-average rosé, with subtle persistency and grip. This has an expansive mid palate that promises raspberry, redcurrant, rosemary and orange peel notes, along with pulses of minerality and a slate-textured finish. Definitely not a wine that needs to be left just for the summer months, this is a brilliant rosé that delivers on expectations. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025.” - Decanter
