Rosé from Bandol is typically fuller and more substantial than the rest of Provence and ours is no exception. It's the equal parts power and finesse that makes it so special. With the vineyards a mere stone's throw from the Mediterranean Sea, there is a bead of salinity that gives way to interwoven aromas and flavors of savory herbs, cherry, blood orange, almond and black licorice, all held together with a backbone of vibrant acidity. The color is a pale, but vibrant, copper. Mourvèdre, especially in this seaside location where it reigns supreme, gives a bit more color than does Grenache or Syrah thus why Bandol Rosés tends to be a bit darker than the rest of Provence. The 2018 is blended and on its lees where it will be in stainless steel tank right up until we bottle on March 1st, which is the law. The wine is bursting with expression, with loads of blood orange, mange, cherry pit, fleur de sel and Provencal herbs.
