Domaine de la Ribotte, Bandol Rosé, Cuvee Anais, 2019

"Pale to mid orangey salmon pink. Big and bold – a rosé to drink with food, preferably a strongly garlicky aïoli. It's not Tempier but it's pretty good and very much deeper and longer than any Côte de Provence rosé. A wine for serious food enjoyed in warm weather, with impressive persistence. I could imagine this going beautifully with roast beef and salad. For anyone who has visited this blessed corner of France in summer, it will create magical memories. 16.5/20", Jancis Robinson, MW, jancisrobinson.com, 8th May 2020

Bandol, a small appellation on the coast east of Marseilles and west of Toulon, produces the fi nest rosés in the world, based on the Mourvèdre grape which thrives on the sunshine and clay soils. It’s a historic wine – the Count of Monte Cristo in Alexandre Dumas’ great revenge novel of 1844 liked his glass of Bandol rosé "bien frais"! This is the seventh vintage we have shipped of this example made by Laurence Desblaches, the first female winemaker in Bandol, and her son Nicolas. 

Overt aroma of fresh peaches (and sea air?) leap out of the glass; and then there's an excitingly intense gamut of fruit flavours, from pink grapefruit and lemon peeel to raspberries and red cherries. Really well-textured, with a characteristic long, mineral and  saline finish which tempts one to sip again.

We have lost count of the number of customers who have told us that this is the best rosé they have ever tasted. (But please note: this is not for people who prefer a rosé that doesn’t taste of anything!). Now-2021
