Les Clans Rosé, Château d’Esclans 2018 In Bond

Double Magnum 300cl bottle: £140.00

Magnum 150cl bottle: £62.00

75cl bottle: £30.00

Sacha Lichine has allocated us a limited amount of this gorgeous 2018 Les Clans to sell which has some of the best press in the world over any other rosés. 


We are offering it in our en primeur rosé offer from Château d'Esclans at a discount for customers while it is being prepared at the Château for shipment in April.


Seasoned rosé buyers will surely need no introduction to this peach of a wine and if you are a Burgundy fan, then this is also a must-try. The Château themselves refer to this as their ‘sophisticated, food driven wine’ and over the years, Les Clans in particular has had an abundance of phenomenal press. The 2018 vintage is a belter and this is a rosé of an entirely different calibre to most. A serious treat, drink it over the summer or for some exciting drinking, watch it improve over the next 5 years. A truly spectacular rosé which has been praised by the critics across all vintages.

About

Chateau d’Esclans is located on an exceptional site, on elevated land near the Gorges de Pennafort, twenty five kilometers northwest of the ancient Roman city of Frejus on the Mediterranean coast. The first traces of the chateau’s site date back to Gaullist times during which its location served as a lookout point to spot intruders coming by boat into the Gulf of Frejus. The chateau’s cellar structure or foundation (known today as the oldest in the region) housed an original Chateau that was given by the Comte de Provence to Gérard De Villeneuve, in 1201. The current chateau, inspired by Tuscan Villa design, was built during the mid 19th century.
