Domaine de la Bastide Blanche Bandol 2019
Looking to upgrade from a simple Provencal rose? Bandol is to Provence like Chateauneuf is to the Rhone (i.e., one of the small DOCS where special wines are made). And the Bastide Blanche vineyard is the most noted in the area. Mostly Mourvedre (71%), this organic rose has all the typical herbal ('garrigue') qualities of classic Provencal wines with a little more heft.
