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)

Orange peel, a little funk, lemon, white peoper, a little cream as it opens, maybe like a dreamsicle, sour lemon/orange on the palate. Strawberry, laser sharp, perhaps a little young? The funk still lurks in the background which is a plus.

Great nose. Great acidity. Lovely rosé.

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

Oranges and minerally/tanniny acidity.

The color is more red-pink than say orange-copper...made from 100% Mourvèdre, this is made in not just amphora as you can see on the label but also 30hL foudre.

A pure elegance and density in the nose of fruits that are complemented by plenty of licorice. The palate is texturally thinner, but more structured, more fruit than spice. More apparent acidity, really fresh and bright with some weight on the finish.

At the end of the day though only some minor differences to the regular rose.

The new fashions in winemaking gathered in a bottle: clay pot (made of sandstone actually) and an extracted rose d'automne (fall rosé). The result is a very ample, wineous (vineux) wine

100% Mourvèdre rose. Like beauty and the beast, or vice versa
