Winemaker Notes

Les Clans is the first of the higher end cuvees and marks a major departure in the flight as well as the way Rose typically tastes. This uniquely delicious wine drinks like a high end Burgundian white wine with a buttery and minerally finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling
This shows a light orange hue to its light rosé petal color. Peaches and creamy aromas with hints of lightly strawberries. Full body, yet fresh and lively with vanilla and hints of coconut. Very flavorful and intense. This is made from 50 to 70 old vines of mostly Grenache. Bottled in August 2011 after 10 months in 600-liter oak. Tastes like a top white Burgundy. Give it a little bottle age to come together. Grenache, Rolle, Tibouren, Cinsault and Syrah.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
The mouthfilling flavors of dried cherry, currant and ripe pear are flanked by concentrated notes of allspice and dark chocolate. The finish unfolds with layers of candied ginger, pineapple and cream that are unctuous and complex.

Since then, he hasn't ceased to combine his talent and know-how to this magical terroir, and has given a new dimension to Provence Rose, making a unique assemblage of refinement and pleasure. A new chapter has begun in the world of Rose.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
