Eggshell, iodine, guava-tangerine,golden apple, heirloom carrot, lemon-lime backnotes, carnations, daisies, meatiness of roast beef bordering on bresaola; strawberry blossoms. Lemon and almost ripe, wild strawberry meet the lemon lime on brick and chalkboard, grapefruit, white cranberry and tangerine. Pithy finish knocks you over as citrus slices through cleanly, and outlines you in chalk! Delicious and refreshing in all ways. #bandol #bandolrosé #rose #ChateaudePibarnon #bandolmakesthebestrosewinesintheworld #pinkwine #pinkstuff #pink #roserumble #rosebouquet #southernfrance

Aged Rose is a special treat. Nothing says spring like rose. Hoppy Easter

Cherry fruit. Flowers. Full-bodied and snappy at the same time. Long.

This is no wimpy Rose. It's balanced, but does better with food than on its own. Too much structure going on for sipping. SS

Man, this is good. For a rose, this is big. It's also very flavorful. Watermelon on the nose and the palate, crisp, and some minerality.

A Bandol stalwart in my favorite style - roast chicken rose’. Not for the pool. Powerful and shy, savory flavors and aromatics - dried out wild strawberry and herbs de Provence. For allocation struggles, seek this instead of Tempier.
