Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé 2015
The grapes used to make this rosé come from selected parcels where the vines are on average 20 years old. The yields are low, which explains the intense concentration and distinct expression of each varietal in this wine. The presence of Mourvedre gives this wine its strong character, balance and complexity. An intense fruit and floral nose make this an attractive rosé. The palate is rounded and full with fruity aromas of peach and pomegranate, followed by delicate spice notes and a pleasant freshness created by acidic balance.
|Varietal(s)||Mourvèdre Grenache Cinsault Carignan|
The Wine Front – It’s one of those wines where you instantly think ‘Oh, this is a winey wine rather than a fruity wine’, and so it is. A kind of pale orange colour, with red cherry, some earthiness, and a what you might call an orange tanginess. The feel is glycerol and silky, but there’s a refreshing cut of acidity, a tweak of dried herb, and a long finish that nips affectionately as it says goodbye. Wonderful.
World Wine – This has a lovely balance of zip and richness, with peach, mango and blood orange notes, lifted by bright savory and rosemary accents. Shows a stony edge on the finish.
In a mixed or straight case: $60.79
