Wine Critic Reviews for 2019 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose

This is considered one of the best rosés in the world. Perfumed and fresh with watermelon, peaches, strawberries and crushed stones on the nose. Hints of cotton candy, too. It’s full-bodied and layered with a creamy texture and a lightly chewy finish. Just a hint of bitter lemon and peach skin. Crunchy at the end. Drink now.

Brilliant orange-pink. Mineral-accented red berries, blood orange and succulent flowers on the incisive nose, which takes on a succulent herb nuance with air. Densely packed yet lively in style, offering palate-staining red currant, strawberry, white peach and honeysuckle flavors that show superb definition and minerally back-end cut. Finishes extremely long and chewy, leaving vibrant floral and mineral notes behind. - Josh Raynolds

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region Provence: There are few countries that could be decent rivals to France when it comes to wines. It seems that French winemakers simply can't go wrong when magically turning grapes into a spellbinding drink that makes all of us sigh in a state of total bliss. Provence is located in southeastern France and represents a meeting point for many cultures and people that each introduced at least one grape variety to the region. This is why today Provence is home to a large number of varieties and, therefore, a spectacular palette of most delicious wines, among which the most popular is probably rose. Every subregion and appellation have their own hallmark that makes them unique and recognized, although Mourvedre is the most commonly cultivated across the whole Provence. Many of them also plant Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah varieties, often used in blends with other, lesser-known grapes, such as Braquet. These varieties are usually cultivated by more traditional winemakers who want to keep the typical French notes instead of following the trends. As for the lovely, full-bodied white wines typical for Provence, they're mostly made of Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc and others. Wines like Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose and d'Esclans Cotes de Provence Whispering Angel Rose are perfect souvenirs to take home after a trip to this French wine region.
Type of Wine Rose: Rose wine is a versatile drink that involves letting the grape juice soak with the skins for several days, before being allowed to ferment properly. The resulting liquid achieves a beautiful color, ranging from a sweet honey orange to a playful purple hue, adding some color variety to your collection.

Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
