La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rosé 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

In the early ’70s Michel and Louis Bronzo acquired the property of the Bastide Blanche, with the goal of producing top Bandol wines to rival their more famous cousins in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Their painstaking efforts were rewarded in 1993 when vintage conditions created the benchmark year that put both Bandol and Domaine de la Bastide-Blanche on the map. The brothers Bronzo have several cuvees, depending on the vintage, however, they always use a minimum of 75% mourvedre. Yields are kept very low, and never exceed more than 34 or 35 hl/ha. They make a delightful Rose, from predominantly Mourvedre, with Grenache and Cinsault, which is unbeatable as an accompaniment to Provencal fare like stuffed zucchini and seafood soups. 13.5% abv.
