Chateau de Pibarnon Bandol Rosé 2016
|Brand||Chateau de Pibarnon|
Wine Enthusiast"Cellar Selection" The wine is rich-a beautiful blend dominated by Bandol's own Mourvèdre. The grapes gives both structure and a perfumed character to this ripe full wine. With acidity and layers of red fruits, it is worth aging. Drink from 2018.
Wine SpectatorRipe and juicy, with lots of inviting blood orange, cherry, white raspberry and peach fruit flavors. Has the density, zip and cut to stay fresh. A food rosé. Drink now. 8,000 cases made.
Vinous"Brilliant orange-pink. Mineral-tinged red berry, citrus fruit and lavender aromas are complemented by a deeper nectarine quality. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy pit fruit and red berry flavors and a hint of blood orange. Smooths out and expands on the long, focused finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind. -- Josh Raynolds"
