With the Bandol rosés now hitting the shelves, it is time to get serious about rosé season. The Gros Noré is one of the most serious and is easily the most attractive and appealing of the bunch. It has wonderful aromatics of cherries, raspberries, and wet stones. There is a succulent minerality, a broad and rich mouthfeel and an appealingly long finish for a wine of this type. With Tempier (the leader in Bandol rosé) hitting the mid-30s pricewise this hits that mark with just as much precision. There is a finite supply for the season, so stock up. I will.
