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

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.

Brilliant orange-pink. Mineral-tinged red berry, citrus fruit and lavender aromas are complemented by a deeper nectarine quality. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy pit fruit and red berry flavors and a hint of blood orange. Smooths out and expands on the long, focused finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2017)

Strawberries & cream, smooth and seductive. Perfect after a day's Autumn sun in Eze (at Chevre D'Or)...

A highly flavorful rose. Grapefruit and minerals early, moving to more citrus and nectarine and rinds of watermelon. A few blossoms in the lingered finish

Raspberry and leafy nose. Lengthy, substance, a tangy, savory, olive-tinged rose that's serious beyond belief.
