Domaine De La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rose 2022, a creation by winemaker Stephane Bourret, is a captivating expression of the Bandol region’s rose excellence.

In the glass, it unveils an intense rose hue that gracefully dances between shades of salmon and pomelo, setting the stage for a sensory adventure. The nose is a revelation, offering a complex bouquet that marries floral and spicy notes with a symphony of citrus and stone fruit. Lemon, Sichuan pepper, and dried apricot aromas interweave seamlessly.

Upon the first sip, the wine’s character unfolds. It is ample, dense, and wonderfully structured. The prominent Mourvadre grape contributes a robust fruit core, ripe with succulent strawberries, while grapefruit and tangerine zest add a zesty vibrancy. Notes of pungent herbs and a subtle hint of spice, courtesy of the Grenache and Cinsault components, further enhance the complexity. The minerality, derived from the limestone-rich soils of St. Anne de Castellet, provides an elegant foundation for this exceptional rose.

Critical acclaim in the form of 92 points from Wine Advocate attests to the wine’s undeniable quality. It embodies the quintessential Bandol rose, with a stony elegance and a captivating interplay of flavors that range from red berries and spices to nuanced hints of curry and menthol. This rose is not only approachable now but also destined to evolve gracefully over the next 1-3 years, making it a delightful choice for those seeking a remarkable and age-worthy rose experience.

WA 92
Wine Advocate
A classic rosé from Bandol, the 2022 Bandol Rose possesses a stony, elegant bouquet with aromas of iodine, red berries and spices, overlaid by nuances of curry and menthol. Layered and textured, perfectly balanced and moderately weighted, it’s fleshy and long with a mineral, delicate and mentholated finish. It’s approachable now but also built to evolve with grace over the next 1-3 years.
