Château de Pibarnon
> Bandol 2014 Rosé
Very small yields, terrace cultivation, for both the Mediterranean varieties that make up this gastronomic rosé.
65% Mourvedre, we get a slightly tannic structured wine, full and fine; Cinsault keeps the fruity side. Dark very ripe fruits, almost jam-like, mingled with notes of spices and bay leaves with a liquorice finish.
The freshness and minerality continue throughout the tasting. A great Bandol.
