Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a very serious rosé. It is tactile, herbal, and has a mineral bitterness that demands food. The wild strawberry, raspberry, and unripe stone fruit notes mix wonderfully with those tactile qualities, and mellow them out, forming the basis of an utterly delicious wine. This ain't your patio sipper, this is your main course wine that could even hang around with a Steak Frites. 91 Points.
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A blend of Mourvedre Grenache and Cinsault grapes from the coolest sites of Bandol region. Dry and simple, with good finesse and green olive bitterness on the finish. Notes of peach apricots and quench with herbs as parsley and fennel pollen. Great food wine, enjoy with a variety of dishes- mainly mediterranean style as fresh arugula and goat cheese salads, quinoa and vegetables, hummus, chick peas and falafel would go fabulously with this wine. Drink now.
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Made from the Mourvedre grape, it's characteristics show even in a rose. A kiss of earthiness along with a good bit more power than the wines colour would hint of.
From Hecht & Banner, Bandol 2017 is a medium-bodied rosé with a bright acidity, ripe cherry, raspberry, light herbs and lavender on the palate. Great balance throughout. Pair with grilled tuna or shellfish. - Community Wine Reviews
