A little skunky at first, slightly sweet, luscious texture. Red fruit and confectionary aromas; fondant. Punchy mineral kick. Great balance. Wish I’d waited a few more years.

the perfume & musk covers red berries, pit fruits, candied citrus & tropical purées

simultaneously light yet suave ~ delivering a floating layer of fruit w a long focused finish ending in the dustiest of minerals

this is the “prettiest” vintage I’ve ever had

An electric bundle of minerals and pink fruit. Very slatey nose. Strawberries and pink plums and champagne currants with a metallic zing on the palate. Surprisingly substantial bit of RS. Would enjoy this more if it were dryer now, but it will probably age phenomenally.

Warm up & palate changer into Thanksgiving dinner. This remains one of my top three Rosés. Even better when you lay them down for 2-3 years. Never disappoints!

Undoubtedly my favorite rosé. Classic Bandol freshness. Traditional blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Cinsault. Ripe melon and peach candy on the nose. The melon and juicy peach flavors carry on the palate and are mixed with guava, sea salt, wet stones, and crisp minerality. This is actually a bit of a baby, will continue to develop nicely over the next few years.

Heavyweight rose, drinks and ages like a red. Full body, red cherries, nectarines, mandarin orange, licorice and herbs. Still getting a fair amount of heat on the finish. Have one more of the ‘14s and will hold a few more years to see if things integrate a bit more. Right now not quite living up to “best rose in the world” billing
