Domaine de Terrebrune Bandol Provence Rosé 2017
Organic viticulture with absolutely no chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers, soil is worked regularly by plow and hand-hoes, buds are trimmed and a green harvest is practice to purposefully limit yields; the average yield is between 35-38 hl/ha, all grapes are harvested by hand, and selection takes place in the vineyards instead of on a sorting table, grapes are de-stemmed and then pressed gently by pneumatic press. Only indigenous yeasts are used, wines ferment in underground, temperature-controlled, gravity-fed cuves, all wines are unfined and unfiltered. Slow fermentations at low temperatures. Wine goes through malolactic fermentation. Ages for 6-8 months in barrel before bottling. Unusually for a rose, this wine can age for up to 20 years.
The 2017 will be released in August 2018. Place your orders now to secure supply.

Wine Spectator – "Mature, with the extra year of age lending a broad, creamy feel to the mix of orange, peach, mango and papaya flavors. Reveals a light echo of wet stone at the very end. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault. Drink now. 2,260 cases imported." – JM (Jun 30, 2018)
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – "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 (Jun 2018)
In a mixed or straight case: $66.49
