Rich, savory, and full without being mouth coating. Starts crisp and broadens out. Blood orange, passion fruit, and tea. Almost creamy. Medium acidity. These rosés provide an important contrast to the culturally preferred rosés of Cotes de Provence.

Delicious red fruits, a touch of rose water, and a bit of a yogurty tang wrapped in a round package. I find this has medium acidity. The full rosé paired with salmon in a pineapple-papaya BBQ sauce quite well!

Round rich red fruit. A big and generous rose to pass the time away. 🌹🧀

Lacked acidity. Fat, glycerin-y style.

Tonight is the 2015 Bandol Rose Domaine de La Bastide Blanche a blend of Mourvedre, Cinsault and Grenache.

The nose is very floral and fruit forward with notes of strawberry, raspberry, peach, tangerine, blood orange, red currant, spice and minerality.

If this tastes as good as it smells it can be a fantastic find. On the palate the wine is crisp and dry there is creamy red berries, strawberry, raspberry, fleshy floral notes, spice and river rock.

The wine has a medium + acidity with a medium crisp finish. A very nice rose that would be great in the summer with some fresh fish over looking the Mediterranean.

Have a great hump day and enjoy the rest of the week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷

Needs more acid. Great Flavors. But creamier than I would like.
