Domaine Lafran-Veyrolles Bandol Rose Organic 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

*Organic* Domaine Lafran-Veyrolles is an estate with a superb terroir and is widely recognised as one of the top producers in the Bandol appellation. Jean-Marie Castell runs this small, traditional estate with just 10 ha of vines on the famous red clay soils. The estate is protected by the hills of the Cadière d'Azur and also benefits from a maritime climate. The estate works organically and the yields are kept extremely low to produce high quality wines with real character. Domaine Lafran-Veyrolles reds in particular have made it one of the star performers of the appellation, but it also produces one of the very best examples of Bandol Rose. This Organic Rose is a beautiful peach-skin colour in the glass, with aromas of peaches and cream along with appealing herbal notes. This is a quite full-bodied style of rose, with ripe peach and apricot fruit, a rounded mouthfeel and lots of herbal and spice notes. This is an excellent example of this richer style of rose, delicious buy itself but also a great food wine. Try with shellfish dishes, lobster bisque, grilled medditteraanean vegatables or spiced dishes. Enjoyable now, but unlike most rose wines this will also keep well over 5+ years and develop a more savoury style.
