chateau d'esclans les clans rose `18 750
This is where the departure from traditional rose really begins! The grapes for Les Clans are selected from old vines consisting primarily of Grenache and Rolle. This wine is made from 90% free run juice and 10% first slight pressing. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in new and second year demi-muids. Burgundian style batonnage occurs twice weekly for ten months to enhance creaminess and complexity.
This wine has fragrant aromas of red berries, white peach and spice and dazzles on the palate with layers of strawberry, cherry, spice and hint of lavender. The lovely complexity accompanies a luxuriously creamy mouthfeel followed by a long, lingering finish. This wine would pair beautifully with everything from rich seafood dishes to roasted chicken!
Epitomizing a sophisticated, food driven wine, Les Clans (entirely fermented and aged in large French oak barrels) represents a particular disconnect with RosÃ© 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.
95 points - James Suckling
"Intense aromas of dried strawberries and peaches with chalk and stone follow through to a full body that's dense and powerful yet always fruity and vivid. Layers of flavors and intensity."
92 points - Wine Enthusiast
"With an extra year of aging before release, this wine has both great fruit and a rich, spicy character. The concentration and the ripe berry flavors are smoothed by rounded tannins and given a bite from pepper flavors at the end. It's ready to drink."
