Domaine Tempier 'Bandol' Rose 2017

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes used to make our 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. This is a wine that shows how great a rose can be.

This really stinks with fetid game notes dominating before adding a light confiture of raspberry and tomato. Lovely resolved medium bodied wine in the mouth with good balance and moderately rich flavors of earth, leather, and gentle red fruits. Grew a bit longer and more linear with air and worked well with the simple food but ultimately remains a simple, rustic wine with good, very savory complexity. 2008-2011

Crystal clear with salmon pink color that goes well with many kinds of food especially provencal food. ~ The Winery ~

Ok, maybe I am a little biased because I was there in Bandol when I drank their roses for the first time. I loved all wineries, the views were incredible and people enjoyed talking to us! This bottle in particular, I brought back. It was creamy and elegant with a hint of fruit, but still very dry. I highly recommend it!

Cassis, violet, strawberries, black currant leaf, with light touches of sweet lemon and ice tea. This is a very dry, medium-bodied rosé. Robert Parker has said at one time that the Domaine Tempier rose is the greatest rosé in the world, which has surely helped it achieve cult status. The 2010 wasn’t, in our opinion, able to live up to these lofty standards, but is undeniably one of the best roses we have tasted, like Provence in a glass. --Wineshout.com

Light bright orange-pink. Complex scents of fresh red berries nectarine and orange zest with a sexy floral overtone. Silky and expansive on the palate offering juicy cherry and pit fruit flavors and an exotic touch of honey. A dusty mineral quality adds bite and lift to the strikingly long chewy floral back end. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Bright, orange-tinged pink. Spicy, mineral-accented aromas of redcurrant, blood orange and white pepper, with a hint of lavender in the background. Focused and precise, with very good depth and vivacity to its bitter red fruit and citrus zest flavo... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
