Light pink and easy drinking, there is plenty of fruit but the the drive of this wine is minerality. A real classic Bandol Rose for the summer time. A blend of Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Grenache, the wine shows pine needles, a hint of resinous underbrush, wild strawberry, fresh melon on the nose. Medium rich palate with stony core, plum, salty peach skin, garrique, and spice flavors on a long tactile finish with the classic saline and savory character that define classic Bandol rosé. While a fine pairing with bolder foods currently, this has the elements that bode for still more compelling drinking over the next five years and beyond.
