Domaine Lafran-Veyrolles Bandol Rosé 2011

Rose from France - Other
Review Date : 09-Jul-2012
This highly regarded domaine has one of the best sites in Cadiere d'Azure. Rosé constitutes approx. 40% of the production. 70% Mourvedre, 20% Cinsault and 10% Grenache, fermented to 13.5% alc. Bright, very pale peachy-pink colour, ‘eye of the partridge', pale on edge. The bouquet is delicately soft with good depth of stonefruit aromas and the faintest red florals and red berry fruits, along with herbs and flint. Dry to taste, subtle rich flavours of red florals and peaches are encompassed by weight and vinosity, the fruit showing a degree of lusciousness, well-matched by alcohol drive. The acidity is discreet, and the rounded mouthfeel carries through to a dry, crisp and sustained finish with light fruit notes. This is a classical dry Bandol rosé with subtle richness and excellent weight. Serve with antipasto and charcuterie over the next 3+ years. 18.0-/20 Jul 2012 RRP $32.99
