"This is deep salmon pink with copper highlights and is all about the red fruits. There’s strawberry on the nose but without being at all jammy. In the mouth it's equally ripe and fruity, but it's a real wine - not a bubblegum rosé. It’s structured, with an edge of tannin and a zip of freshness to balance the fruit, and a long finish. - Sarah Jane Evans MW"
"Produced mainly with Mourvèdre, this orange-pink-colored wine is smooth and ripe. It has a feeling of fullness, with flavors of concentrated spice, caramel and red plum. The wine is likely to be ready from late 2019 or even 2020. - Roger VOSS"
"From a great domaine, the 2017 Bandol Rosé (80% Mourvèdre and 20% Grenache) is, as always, made in a slightly richer style, and shows complex notes of cherries, garrigue, spice, and even a touch of earth. Medium-bodied, nicely textured, and length, it’s a rosé for the dinner table and will keep for another year or so."
"This is a rich style of rosé, due to the high proportion of Mourvèdre in the blend and to the warm exposure of the vineyard. But it is balanced, the rich red fruits easily cut with acidity and with a touch of minerality. Drink the wine now. - Roger Voss"
"This rich, orange-pink-colored wine is intensely fruity while also structured. Dry although with a good streak of ripe berry and orange flavors, the wine is very much for food. The ripe aftertaste lingers deliciously. - Roger Voss"
"A terrific food Rosé, the 2015 Bandol Rose sports a medium pink color to go with lots of salty minerality, bright cherry, and strawberry aromas and flavors. It has texture and freshness. - Jeb Dunnuck"
