Bandol, Provence

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Rosé Blend 2020

A rosé that will rock your socks off from the legendary producer Domaine Tempier,
Brilliant wine from start to finish. Vivid nose with fresh red berries and a zesty, grape-like bitterness, orange blossom and a whole bunch of fresh herbs over a canvas of wet stones.
Fresh and bright palate with a stoney , mineral nerve that cuts through the pronounced fruit concetration and the slight creamy viscosotiy, a layered complexity through a long stimulating finish.
As good as the legend goes, unfortunaltely a challenge to get your hands on.

Château Vannières

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2020

Delectable Wine

Light orange-pink. Fresh red berries, white peach, orange zest and pungent flowers on the mineral-accented nose. Focused and energetic on the palate, offering redcurrant, nectarine and blood orange flavors that deepen and turn sweeter with air. Shows impressive energy and minerally bite on the persistent finish, which leaves lavender and pit fruit notes behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)

Château de Pibarnon (Comte de Saint Victor)

Nuances Comte de Saint Victor Bandol Mourvedre Rosé 2019

Delectable Wine

Light, brilliant orange. Expansive, mineral-accented blood orange, red currant and nectarine aromas are complemented by suggestions of succulent herbs, honey and lavender. Sappy, chewy and penetrating on the palate, offering densely packed red berry, pit fruit and floral flavors underscored by a vein of chalky minerality. Smoothly plays power off finesse and finishes minerally and extremely long, with repeating floral and pit fruit notes. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)

Château Vannières

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2020

2020 vintage. Appropriately dry finish and lilting body but this one is all about the nose perhaps accurately described as harmonious funk. It just works. — 21 days ago

Bandol Mourvèdre Blend Rosé 2020

Delectable Wine

Limpid orange-pink. Expressive red berry, blood orange and pit fruit aromas are accompanied by building mineral and floral nuances. Taut and energetic in the mouth, offering sappy strawberry, orange zest and lavender flavors braced by a spine of chalky minerality. Finishes silky and impressively long, with repeating mineral and floral notes. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)
