Bandol, Provence

Domaine du Gros' Noré

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2020

A little earthy and brooding but it’s got that mid-palate zip of sunshine and flowers. Love me some Bandol. — a month ago

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2016

So much going on in this glass! Iron, barnyard, garrigue, black cherry, plum, leather, moist soil, dried flowers and herbs, spice, anise, and cocoa powder. A beautiful wine!

Château Sainte Marguerite

Cru Classé Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2020

Nice!
Very mineral, saline and savory impressions. Not that complex not deep, but highly drinkable, fresh and thirst quenching.

Clos de L'ours

L'Accent Rosé Blend 2020

Cherry Jolly Rancher and flowers nose. On the palate dry and more mineral. Nuanced. Then floral again. I adore. — a month ago

Domaine Ray-Jane

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2016

Wet earth, beef, stewed raspberries and blackberries. Not my favorite style but pretty good. I have had some good Mourvèdre before but this is a bit different. Dry chalky finish. — 10 days ago

Took a little to open up, but when it did, it was smooth as velvet. — 13 days ago

Château la Tour de l'Évêque

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2021

Bright, pale salmon orange. Shy nose and medium light palate underripe peach, dried strawberry, citrus pastels, and honeysuckle nectar, layered with other juicy fruity and floral notes. Medium acidity from entry to the moderate, red licorice finish. The gastronomic rosé from Regine Sumaire's flagship Château makes an excellent sipper, but shines when paired with food. Spring and summer fare (salade Niçoise is a classsic) of course, but anywhere you want a refreshing, light companion. Drink now. — 6 days ago
