The 2018 Domaine de la Bastide Blanche Rosé is absolutely stunning. Composed of predominately Mourvèdre, with the remaining Grenache and Cinsault, this begins with gorgeous aromas of fresh white peaches, strawberries, lemon zest, orange blossoms, crushed stones and a light dusting of dried herbs that all come together beautifully. On the palate this is bright, vivid and beautifully textured, with remarkable overall precision and balance all the way through the mouth watering finish. This Rosé has it all, and it will be extremely difficult to come across a more compelling Rosé in this price range. — 10 days ago
Mmm. Currants, raisons, dates, leather, and some bretty barnyard funk. Nice.
Lots of currants and dried dark fruit up front, but balanced with fairly bright acidity and leathery, earthy tannins. Spice notes also linger.
Delicious albeit rustic wine, especially with food. Tannin quality suggests that this still has a good bit of time ahead of it. — 14 days ago
Actually a rose. Was very good with very nice floral notes. I believe it is not distributed in US. (Purchased in France at the vineyard.) — 13 days ago
Interesting Southern France wine. Aromas of pronounced berry and floral scents. On the palate raspberry and plum flavors, currant like. Aged in oak for about 20 months. Well balanced, still very tight, long finish but needs time to develop. Tasting Sample. — 12 days ago
Salmon in colour and very southern France in the nose - with some shy melon and berry but pronounced rosemary, lavender, herbs de Provence. Nice structure with some weight, a touch of tannin and great juicy acidity with a salty finish. This is a great food wine and a nice example of Bandol rosé. — 23 days ago
