Château de Pibarnon Bandol Rosé 2018

SKU 56211


A full-bodied, blush wine that captures the licorice and berry intensity of Mourvèdre with a touch of silk from Cinsault. When you hear people talk of "serious" rosé, they're talking about this wine. Ages tremendously well!

Wine AdvocateUnfortunately, the sample of the 2017 Nuance Rose was corked, but the 2018 Bandol Rose is a solid representative of the appellation. At 65% Mourvèdre and 35% Cinsault, it eschews the rich fruit of Grenache in favor of citrusy power. Lime notes define this medium-bodied wine, showing ample intensity and persistence, even if they lack a bit of-dare I say it?-nuance.
