Domaine de Terrebrune Rosé 2017

$79.00

Bandol Rosé at its best!  This wine is made from 50% Mourvedre, 25% Grenache and 25% Cinsault. The fruit is handpicked with only natural yeasts used in fermentation; incredibly, this wine can age for 20 years. Few rosés are as persistent and long on the palate as this. Concentrated, ripe fruit brimming with nuances of wild strawberry, cherry, peach juice and apricot. There is a savoury and mineral side to the wine as well, with nuances of salinity, herbs, and crushed roses.
