Tasting Notes

An estate that continues to ratchet up the quality level, Domaine du Gros Nore's 2014 Bandol Rose is a beauty that does everything right. Loaded with notions of flinty minerality, orange rind, tangerines and honeysuckle, it hits the palate with beautiful fruit intensity, lively, integrated acidity and a tight, focused, clean finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. This is a classic Bandol rose that offers beautiful drinkablity now, yet will have 2-3 years of prime drinking. 92. Jeb Dunnuck erobertparker.com

Owner Alain Pascal has 16 ha of vines in the prime sector of Cadiere d'Azur. The first official vintage released was 1997. Prior to this, Alain's father, Honore (his name is shortened to 'Nore to give the name of the Domaine as Gros Noré = Fat Honore) worked the vineyards but never made his own wine. Instead he sold the grapes to another leading Bandol producer at that time, Chateau de Pibarnon. These beautifully sited vineyards have an average age of 30 years with some located in the highest coolest part of Bandol.

Bandol is regarded as the First Growth of Provence producing the most serious, and well known, wines of Provence. The Mourvèdre grape variety is the basis of great Bandol with appellation laws requiring a minimum of 50% for the red wines (though many use up to 100% for some cuvees). - Importer Note
