Limpid orange. Mineral-accented red berries and tangerine on the incisive nose, backed by a suave floral nuance. Densely packed yet lively on the palate, offering refreshingly bitter red currant and blood orange flavors that spread out slowly on the back half. Finishes with bright minerally cut and excellent persistence, leaving a suggestion of honeysuckle behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2018)

Whereas most of Bandol's top estates concentrate themselves in the appellation's center, Domaine de Terrebrune, a personal favorite, finds itself on the eastern edge. While its name may connote heavier soils, a bedrock of limestone gives Terrebrune's wines their finesse and ethereal precision. With flavors of rounded river rocks, cherry pit, raspberry, Bergamot orange peel, and sweet garden herbs, the Terrebrune 2016 demonstrates why Bandol is such a singular place for top tier rosé. 50% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, 25% Cinsaut.

A briney iodine character that reminds me of an Islay whisky. Otherwise, a crisp malic dusty tannin finish.

Savory, meaty, smokey, without the band aid... Fresh wine with supple tannin at 6 years.

The perfect companion to a classic summer dish—Salade Niçoise. The
Terrebrune Bandol Rosé is one of the more winsome, elegant rosés I've tasted this year. Primarly composed of Mourvèdre grown in blue Trias limestone soils, it is the minerality that really shines, along with breezy notes of alpine strawberries, raspberries, white peach and Rainier cherries. It is drier and more refined on the palate than the nose belies, with freshness, energy and acidic verve all dancing 'round a pronounced vein of chalk.
