If I was writing the Bible on Rosé it would have two commandments; buy Spain for everyday, and buy south of France for special occasions. Or whenever you have time to savour. A rule that applies to all wines that are not everyday-priced.
There is a special quality to the Rosés of Bandol and other Provence sites that makes them special, but not everyone will “˜gets it’ because it’s about subtlety. Instead of big flavours or brisk refreshment, the experience starts slowly ““ building like an expensive perfume. With persistence and a “˜hidden’ richness. The wine below will work for anyone who likes to set beautiful, French-style ~ patio table. And serve Mediterranean inspired food.
P.S. Most Bandol Rosés start at $25+ so this is good value.
