“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.” - Decanter

“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.” - James Suckling
