La Bastide Blanche
La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rose 2022750ml
Most rose is made as a bit of an afterthought, or as a by-product of the estate's red wine. Not so in Bandol. The coastal region west of St. Tropez is as renowned for its roses just as much as its long-aging reds. A pale, orange-salmon, this is the quintessential Riviera wine: refreshing enough for daytime quaffing, yet deep enough to stand up at the table. Aromas of peach blossom, nectarine, grapefruit rind & Herbes de Provence hint at flavors of wild strawberry, watermelon, citrus, and white pepper. Decant to enjoy now or save for up to 5 years and pair with tuna carpaccio and roast zucchini al fresco.
