Provencal Rose

Domaine du Gros' Noré

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2019

Surprisingly quaffable Bandol rosé... the edgy Mourvèdre notes are here, blood orange rind, garrigue, bright acidity. But the balancing blend introduces softer melon notes that makes this more accessible on release than other Bandols I’ve tried (Tempier, etc), and at a 30% discount as well. Nice! — 9 days ago

Domaine de Triennes

Vin de Pays du Var Cinsault Blend Rosé 2019

On this Sunday night the start of a new work week I have opened the 2019 Domaine de Triennes Rosé. This wine comes from Nans-les-Pins, France located between Marseilles and Toulon North of Bandol. This is a blend of mainly Cinsault with smaller amounts of Grenache, Syrah and Merlot.

On the nose I am getting red rasberry, cherry, tangerine, pomegranate, red currant, musky melon snd floral notes.

On the palate there is raspberry, tart cherry, strawberry, nectarine, a spiciness and good minerality.

This wine is pale pink onion skin in color, light to medium bodied with medium + acidity tuat moves into a long crisp fresh citrus finish. We are looking at a new week ahead and I wish everyone a safe and healthy prosperous week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2018

I love Rosè from Provence and this is delicious with a few years on it! Presents with a gorgeous light orange/cantaloupe color. Flavors of honeydew, cantaloupe, nectarines papaya and soft minerals! Medium bodied with a decent long finish! First time sampling this wine; a local find and would seek this again. — 14 days ago

@Trixie thank you Trixie!

Bandol Rosé Blend 2017

Not your Mom’s version of Bandol rose by any stretch of the imagination. Bold, fragrant flowers, strawberries, clove, fun aromatics. Soft mid palate brings a smile to my face. Slightly aged rose is a fabulous taste profile. Thanks to Mr. Tilson for the brilliant recommendation. — 5 hours ago

Cibonne

Côtes de Provence Tibouren Rosé 2017

I saw someone use the word “Umami” to describe this wine. Agreed. That’s a fine descriptor. Deeply flavored, yet light and big on ripe citrus, herbs and sea breeze. Damn this one is a gem and a standard bearer of what Provence produces. Get some! — 5 days ago

Danny wants to override Kevin’s comments. It is great. He’d continue fucking with it. Now we need to see our neighborhood wine guy and buy some more. — 6 days ago

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2015

Good find for a good price at Trader Joe's. Light flavor but not too bland, doesn't have as much of that mineral flavor that Provence typically has. — 9 days ago
