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.

Drank this over several days. Another good ‘16 from Bandol. Pop of watermelon, good acidity and refreshing.

Funky, tannic, and serious for a rose. Herbed strawberries on the nose and in the mouth with abundant green flavors like marjoram and sage, though perhaps not in the right proportions.
