2017 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé - Wine Review
Rosé from the Bandol appellation of Provence - Domaine Tempier
Price - $38
Mourvèdre (50 %), Grenache (28%), Cinsault (20%), Carignan (2%)
Color - It is a beautiful pale pink, like raw salmon but not as saturated.
Nose - This is a peach bomb, difficult to pick lots of other notes as this is the dominant scent, maybe a tertiary citrus/red fruit (mostly grapefruit and strawberry).
Palate - The peach shows up again, not in an overly sweet way though. It is crisp and balanced, great acidity and the slight citrus shows up on the finish.
Overall, a great wine and arguably one of the best rosé wines in the world. There is a reason it is so sought after year after year. It is a quintessential expression of rosé and should not be overlooked if you enjoy the pink drink.
