What You Need To Know About Bandol Rosé Wine And Food

Bandol Rosé is a powerful, dry rosé wine made from local grapes in Provence in southeastern France. Unlike Bandol Red there is no minimum percentage of the Mourvèdre grape variety, but as a rule of thumb look for Mourvèdre on the label, the more the better. This is not a wine to age.

This wine is often sold in half bottles. For simplicity and comparaison purposes we quote prices for full bottles. Bandol Rosé starts at about $12 a bottle. Domaine Tempier basic Bandol Rosé is a fine choice at about $30 a bottle with its orange blossom and nectarine aromas, refreshing acidity, and abundant fruit. Their Migoua about $50. It sometimes smells quite organic, if you know what I mean. Domaines Ott makes a fine Bandol Rosé at about $35 that tastes of spices, apricot, and grapefruit.
