In Stock Now!

"Fairly pale salmon colour. Lovely light floral fragrance and just-ripe wild raspberry aromas. Creamy on the palate with a rich texture that has weight and intensity through to the long finish. Very impressive and highbrow. Not hugely complex, but the weight and breadth and clarity gives it huge interest. 17+ Now-2020."  Richard Hemming MW,

Bandol produces the finest rosés in the world. This is the fourth vintage we have shipped of this example made by Laurence Desblache and her son Nicolas. Pale salmon robe. Amazing aromas of peach juice and pink grapefruit leap out of the glass; followed by delectable intensity of white peach and red berries. Really well-textured, with a characteristic long and mineral finish. We have lost count of the number of customers who have told us that this wine is the best rosé they have ever tasted. Now - 2019

The Domaine de la Ribotte is a family affair. Maurice Desblache’s grandfather bought the domaine which is now run by Maurice’s wife Laurence, the first female winemaker in Bandol, and their son Nicolas. I came across their rosé while judging gold medal winners at the Decanter World Wine Awards. When we traced the family we were surprised to discover that they had never exported before, and even in France you can only buy their wine from the Domaine or from the Marché de Bandol, where Laurence has been selling it almost every day for the past 35 years! If you love rosé and have never spent over £10 on a bottle we would greatly encourage you to try the cuvée Anais. Bandol arguably produces the best rosés in the world and Laurence’s wine would not be out of place in a tasting amongst more prestigious and expensive examples.
