2021 Now finished: BANDOL ROSÉ, Moulin de la Roque. Roussillon

Bin:  306

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

On the Provencal coast, Bandol is home to southern France’s most serious and age-worthy rosés. The key is the Mourvèdre grape, which produces notoriously tough and ‘brawny’ reds, but given only the lightest of contact with the skins, its juice makes for delicate and yet structured pink wine.

Grape variety:

Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan and Syrah

Producer:

As described by UK agent Dreyfus-Ashby:
“In 1950, the co-operative cellars in Saint-Cyr, Sanary-sur-Mer and Cadière -d’Azur amalgamated to create Moulin de la Roque, within a disused 16th Century flour mill. In 2006, the cellar was joined by Les Maitres Vignerons du Beausset. By 2012, a new cellar at the foot of the fortified village of La Cadière d’Azur had been constructed. Vinification remains at the original moulin cellar, with all blending, ageing and bottling conducted at the new facility.
With 200 members, holdings of some 313 hectares of vines, representing some 20% of the whole Bandol appellation, Moulin de la Roque is a formidable force in maintaining the reputation for what is the regions most celebrated wine.”

Old Bridge rating:

Classic Provence rosé style, but with added richness and complexity.
